    ... they cut to make the canoe. There was a hole in the middle of the stump. I climbed up the side of the stump, yes, climbed up, that's how huge it was, if I lied across it, I wouldn't be able to touch the other side. Jumping in the hole of the stump, I realised it nearly came up to my neck. It was huge. Massive. Enormous. Absolutely gigantic. After admiring the huge stump, we headed to the meeting house to answer a few other questions. ...

    ... there and it came with all the paraphernalia of the original and succeeding family. It was very moving really to see the bits and bobs of a family, and what they had taken with them halfway round the world. Now to put things into perspective this weekend is the last long holiday weekend of the summer. It is the Waitangi holiday weekend.

    ... and went for it. I was more concentrating on watching the people watching and their disgusted faces than what it tasted or felt like. I did gag a couple of times and had to force it down but it went down compared to some people who just threw it back up again off the side of the boat. I have to say I was quite proud that I actually did it and as Simon, our CEO says 'embrace the bizarre' and we definitely did that.
