Office Work

Andrew has been given a desk by the window, with a good view over the city and an Internet connection.  I, on the other hand only go to the office periodically and get to sit at a long table and have no Internet connection. 

And Andrew has taken to telling people we are working on this project together – but that HE is the boss.

Andrew Office

It’s a brand new building in its 1st 12 months so everything is new and shiny and it even has an electronic ticker tape across the top of the building.

What you cant see from this angle are the concrete elephant statues in the grounds, congregating around a watering hole.

Also not in picture is the grounds man we watched from the window.  He spent a good 3 or 4 minutes throwing his coolie hat into the air and doing magnificent soccer goal-keeper dives onto the grass.  Bored with that, he then went back to cutting the shrubs.

PS.  In case you were wondering what sort of building is required to house a stock exchange which only has two companies on it – here is a picture below. 

It is also brand new and purpose-built within the last two years.  The exchange trades from 8:30am to 11:30am. 

According the stock exchange report in the paper on Friday the previous day saw 10 trades in one stock at total value of NZ$1,600 and the other stock had 146 trades worth about NZD$25,000
