I will gather photos and experiences to create a lasting memory of what it's like to be 11 years old in Hamilton New Zealand, and all the things I love about my life in this part of the world.


Day 44 Fire hose!

Tonight I went to the local Fire Station with my sister's Cubs group. We got to squirt the fire hoses, sit in a fire engine and see the volunteer fire brigade. When they first turned on the hose, the fire fighters told us all to stand on the empty hoses to try to block the water flow. I sat on it and heaps of other kids were standing and jumping, but nothing was going to stop the water. I pulled back the lever and the water surged out fast. I might join the Volunteer Fire brigade when I grow up. You have to be 18 and have no criminal record and get on well with the rest of the brigade.
