To finish off my Easter holidays today, I decided to go to the movies.  Having seen the trailer for this movie and then on recommendation from dad, I decided to go and see the 'World's Fastest Indian'.  Anthony Hopkins (always a favourite of mine) played Burt Munro, a New Zealander (from Invercargill) -or as Burt says, sometimes I spell it Invercargil, with one l… to save ink. 🙂 Burt set off from NZ to Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah and with the odds well and truly stacked against him, he sets a new land speed record in his classic (homemade) Indian motorcyle.  This in 1967 and the record still stands!  Great story, great characters and I really enjoyed this movie – can definitely recommend.
