1neiether Kate nor me though if Simon's right we graduated from the same university.

2. Blue building on right either a long drop or hq of very small branch of Conservative Party.

3. Looks a wee bit like Roxborough dam but isn't.

4 looks a bit like St Kevin's College in Oamaru but think Cadwallader might be right.

5. Maritime retreat for the rational.

Kate Edgar; not only the first NZ Grad but the first woman in the British Empire to graduate with a BA in mathematics. Also the second woman in the world to graduate from university.

Not sure who's place but I am betting they are watching the V8 Supercars. Location looks Central Otago.

Maraetai Dam on the Waikato.

Olveston House in Dunedin.

Havelock in the Sounds.
