... in the water. The tour was informative about the building, its uses and also Maori customs and way of life. Incredible to think that New Zealand has no indigenous people, the Maori only arrived about 800 years ago from the Pacific Islands to escape overcrowding and tribal rivalries in their homeland. Must have been a shock for the wildlife, but at least they didn't change things to the extent the Europeans did later! The sunscreen was needed, by the ...

Under the volcano

... their natural environment (they're nocturnal). No pictures I'm afraid, kiwis are very skittish. One of them was particularly naughty and ran around a lot when we weren't looking, but disappeared when we were.
