      ... out of. The visit finished with a hangi, or feast, which is steamed in a clay mound. The food was an incredibly buffet and I was perplexed that pavlova was served for dessert until I discovered that this is, disputedly, a Kiwi invention.

      That evening we went to the local bar, which was much livelier than its equivalents would have been in Rotorua or the Hot Water Beach. Unfortunately, I couldn't stay up much past midnight since healing my sunburned skin ...
