I is for Invercargill

Our journey around New Zealand takes us way down to the bottom of the South Island today.

Invercargill is a most interesting city for political and educational reasons even aside from its drawcards of lovely churches, including a basilica, long beach and its proximity to world famous Bluff oysters. Politically, the city is known for its colourful mayor, Tim Shadbolt, a well-known figure in New Zealand. The educational lure of students to Invercargill is because the Southern Institute of Technology operates as”Zero Fees” scheme for New Zealand citizens and permanent residents.

(And finally I learn how to insert links that seem to work. :) )
