... to dry and made some dinner. Ed managed to take a fair chunk out of his thumb trying to open a tin of chick peas with a fairly useless tin opener, but fear not Kate kicked into nurse mode and it's looking like he'll make it all ok. The next morning we pointed the van towards Rotorua which was to be on our next stop. Ahead of that we stopped off at Mata Mata, home to Hobiton and the Shire from The Lord of the Rings movies.

... at about 5pm, so it was just a few tourists looking at this giant pit! There were guided tours down available but I wouldn't have liked to guess how much these would be. We could see a few workers and vehicles moving around to try and give us a sense of scale, what is more overwhelming is that there are now shafts dug down further than we could see, some twice as deep as the base of the huge original mine.
