Teams from around the world are here in Wellington for the International Rugby Sevens. It’s an annual event and it kicks off with a lunch-time parade through the streets from Parliament through to Civic Square. It’s a good humored event with plenty of interaction between the crowds and the players and entertainers along the way. And despite all, Wellington usually manages to turn on a beautiful day. Everyone wants to be part of the welcome, even those people stuck in their workplaces who have to sneak a peek out of their windows.
As I was walking down towards the parade I noticed from a reflection on a building one guy had managed to get a private viewing loft. I smiled to myself and thought how cool it would be to have the entire parade laid out at your feet – viewing just for your pleasure – on a perfect day in the capital.
I guess it’s just a choice we make – every day as a parade just for you – or some sort of sneaked peek out a grimy window at someone’s else’s parade.
