I've reached Queenstown on My Great South Island Road Trip. I am sitting in a (Mc)Cafe and I have just finished two (two!!) Large caramel sundaes. I am so tired and hot that I just wanted to jump into the sundaes. I have walked along the Queenstown-Frankton track in 26c heat. It was terrible walking the last ten minutes up a hill road - I was at the end of my tether, thirsty, grumpy, hot, worn out.
Talking about cafes, do my four readers remember when we used to get great ice cream sundaes? Like a peach Melba or a Banana Split? They seemed to have disappeared. Take up too much time to make, I guess. In Las Vegas, at Gordon Ramsay's pub I had a knickerbocker glory. I've never ever seen one in New Zealand.
