    Lovely stuff, Russell. I lived in Auckland for twenty years, and one of my favourite places to take visitors from overseas was the Savage Memorial, a place of such elegant understated beauty and calm, built to honour a great socialist.

    magic market ride…

    I prefer to take visiting friends to Avondale Markets on a Sunday morning, to shop for old books and bok choi.

    Is there a South African enclave were you can go for ‘old 'Boks and book joy’?

    Lovely photos, Russell. I went to the Avondale Market a couple of Sundays back, It is a great experience but I was hoping to find more stalls selling fruit from the Pacific Islands (papaya, mangoes, lichees, big passionfruit, swert bananas) that were in such abundance in Samoa,

    You'd want to try Otara Market for that. Avondale's produce merchants are mostly Asian. Although they've finally started offering European herbs.
