Wet and Windy is the reputation of Wellington, New Zealand's capital and that is exactly what greeted us in today's visit to that city.

The poor weather constrained us from the wider range of available activities and we confined ourselves first to a trip on the Wellington Cable Car ( or funicular, if Andrew prefers).

Apart from the terminus at each end, the cable car has two intermediate stops, one of which is at the local University. The entire trip, with stops, lasts about three and a half minutes.

Later we walked around in the wind and rain to the National Museum, Te Papa, which is very interesting, brilliantly presented and highly recommended.
