... covered in blue/white star like glow worms. They were so bright, even when we shone our torches on then we could still see them. After an hour inside the cave, feeling like Gollum and covered in mud, we made our way out, blinded by the daylight. Next we randomly stopped at some wood shop making clocks and furniture out of 40,000 year old kauri wood pulled out of swamps.
