Hanging with the celebrities: Dan Carter
Dan Carter visited the restaurant I work at in Auckland in October.
I saw him at one of the tables at the far end outside but I didn't bother much about getting closer to see him. Eventually, he and his friends left.
That night, when I finished work, I was sitting outside having a drink with another workmate before heading home.
Carter walked in with a couple of friends and asked if we'd seen his sunglasses - we looked for them but had no luck.
I asked if I could have a photo taken with him and after about 20 attempts - my flash wasn't working properly - we got the right one.
Then he asked me and my workmate if we wanted to join him and his friends at another pub - we did and had a great night just hanging out.
He'd been to my country in South America, so we shared travel stories.
