... gestures and we were allowed to enter! Such great theatre.

When we entered the Marae we were seated and then the show began which included the Poi and the Haka. One of the warriors sang Pokareana. It was really good entertainment. After a blessing of the food we entered the dining room and were treated to the best food we've eaten on this trip. We started with Kumara soup and it really was good. I moved onto the salads & prawns while Garry ate the Hangi ...

... re lit up by the red of the rising sun. We get to Tongariro around 08.10 and wait 15 minutes for our transfer across to the start of the hike. It’s a beautiful day – there’s a few clouds around but the sun is burning them away already and it’s looking almost perfect for the hike, a far cry from a couple of days ago. Our transfer driver delivers a traditional Maori welcome and good luck ceremony before the hike, then we’re let loose on ...

... kind of audience participation and was mortified at falling over in front of everyone. In hindsight me laughing was probably not the best reaction, but in my defence he wasn't hurt and it was really, really funny. Such a shame I wasn't filming it...naughty wife! Tomorrow we're going to the Coromandel or 'Cock Handle' as Amy now thinks it's called thanks to a terrible wifi signal and her interpretation skills on today's Skype session. Miss you Blondie! ...
