... logistics and the 400 cast and crew that came here each day to work. Then we are there. There's the distinctive hill and the oak tree in all its fibreglass and nylon grandeur, colourful round doors. Cameras of all shapes and sizes appear in most hands and the urge to stray into this film set is strong. Ethan does a great job keeping the 40 of us together during the tour.

... at the Green Dragon, which was the only building that had a furbished interior. We were given a choice of complementary drink at the Green Dragon, and we both chose an alcoholic apple cider (we could have also got an amber ale, stout, or non-alcoholic ginger beer). All four of those drinks are only available at the Green Dragon and are brewed especially for the set.

I grabbed a takeaway for two before the local curry house closed and smuggled it into our room. I arrived late to Sarah but with curry so she was a happy girl. We sat in bed eating curry into the night with smiles on our face. Tomorrow we are going to check out the rest of Rotorua. I'll let you know how it ...

The first part was a bit stop and start so we were both thinking 'This is going to be a long day!' but it quickly improved and the cruise along Doubtful Sound as far as the Tasman Sea and back was superb.
