Hamilton is home of the University of Waikato so it's where I have been living since early July.  I move out of the dorms in mid-November and will start travelling around so I'm not sure that I'll make it back to Hamilton that much.  It's not exactly one of the nicer cities I've been to in New Zealand (Auckland or Taupo have been my favorites so far) but it does have some good parts.

Springtime on campus at the University of Waikato - I go running on this path almost every day

The "Fernery" is one of the coolest places to walk through on campus

The "Great Race" was held on the Waikato river - U of Waikato beat Oxford University!

The view outside my window at the dorms.
