The New View


An icy midwinter evening after a beautiful sunny Dunedin day - the very best that this season has to offer here in the South. Looking from the new house on the hill, across the narbour to the city. The large structure lit up like a Chinese lantern is the controverisal new stadium - an expensive luxury bankrupting the entire district -  the brighter it shines the duller the surroundings seem. It's drawing all the money to itself and swallowing it in one glowing burp. I wonder if we'll be able to hear Elton John from over here when he plays the inaugural concert.

Too bad about the stadium causing problems. We had the Winter Olympics here which got us in financial trouble.

Wow. I have to thank you for this post. I had no idea that the stadium got approved and had been built, let alone opened!
I am so proud of Dunedin. First the Chinese Gardens, now this. The waterfront might just get renewed and turn into a real attraction.
