Smoko

Smoko, (many people used to have a cigarette at this time), morning/afternoon tea, whatever you call it, it's nice to have a break with your mates. In New Zealand, you must have some bickies (cookies) with your coffee or milky tea, preferably with some chockie smeared on it, but lately biscotti have become very popular, too. This cart is at the top of Trafalgar Street, at the bottom of the Cathedral steps, besides the whale. There is another coffee cart on the Trafalgar and Hardy Streets corner. They both serve good coffee.

In recent time, public locations where smoking is still allowed have been diminished greatly, but many people still call the small kitchen in the work place "Smoko Room".

(My workshop was fantabulous. None of us 12 participants will never be the same as weavers again; more thoughts elsewhere in due course.)

  1. I wanted to thank you for joining Fanpop and adding your amazing photo blog to the site! It's a really nice addition and I hope that more people will find your photos through it. I wanted to personally welcome you, but also encourage you to make sure that on top of adding your photo blogs to the Daily Photo Spot, to make sure you add them to their relevant country or city spots as well. Michael has already set a great example!

    Fanpop is all about having people who are passionate about different interests help to find the best content on the web for each of those topics and finding community with others who share those passions. By adding your brilliant photos to their country or city spots, you help others who love that country or city to find them. Here are just a few examples:

    London
    France
    San Francisco
    Shanghai
    India

    And if you don't see your favorite country or city represented, then create a new spot for it! And make sure you add other links that you find useful for that local country. And invite others who share your passion for those places to join as well! Fanpop is all about community building and collaboration, so it's not meant to be done alone...just like all you Daily Photo bloggers coming together! And I'm sure you'll find other interesting content on there as well. Let others know who you are and join a few spots and add some of your favorite local websites! Be careful though...it can be addictive!

    Looking forward to seeing you all there. And keep on shooting those magnificent photos around the world! :)

  2. I love to eat bickies with my coffee. But I didn't know to call them that until today when I read your post. Thanks for that little cultural note.

  7. Thanks, guys. I came home all psyched up, but with a horrible cold and have been totally out of circulation, my suitcase sitting inside the front door. Yuck. I've got over 200 photos from the workshop and can't wait to put some up in Unravelling!
