    ... we had all opted to stay with a Maori tribe for the night. As soon as we arrived it was evident that there is a lot of geothermal activity going on in Mourea, as it really smells of egg/sulphur and you can see a lot of steam rising out of the ground in many places.

    For some unknown reason Hennessey's Irish Pub had some sort of magically attraction to us that we decided to have lunch here.

    ... Anyway after making our way there we were treated with a big sign saying the place was closed, we were gutted. Decided to head back towards another attraction which we passed about 5 miles back. Again another interesting mistake. We ended up at a place called Te Puia. After entering we went straight to the cafe a got something to eat.
