Some parts of last weekend’s Parihaka music/peace festival were really not fun. Like my face sunburn (mostly on my nose, sad, sore, and peeling), the hot drive down, and the rainy, exhausted drive back in the wee hours of Monday morning. But some parts of the festival were really great, like seeing Wellington’s 7-piece funk-rock band the Aviators! Woohoo! Also, I appreciated the Supreme Master vegetarian food stall. It’s been a long time since I ate Supreme Master style at her scary bizarro restaurant in San Jose.
