All the healthy and unhealthy things

This morning we visited the historic Dunedin train station, where the local farmer's market is held. It was especially fun(ny) after reading this spot-on article from The Onion: Couple Spends Morning at Farmer's Market Verbalizing Everything That Comes Into Field of Vision. This is me exactly (and you, too, admit it)! We got tickled trying NOT to say everything that came into our field of vision and found we just couldn't do it, or if we could, we just didn't enjoy the market as much.

After picking up some healthy items at the market, and wandering around the awesome train station, we made our way across the street to Cadbury World, where we encountered all that is unhealthy in this world. We had lunch in the cafe and then took the factory tour, where we received an obscene amount of freebies and got to see a cool chocolate waterfall. While we were able to take pictures in the museum, cameras were not allowed in the factory, so you'll just have to take my word for it that it was cool.
