We were welcomed into the Marae at Te Puia centre in Rotorua with a wonderful custom then entertained by a love story, song and dance. 'Marae' is the name for house in Maori language, and with much cultural significance are shared by many families.
After visiting the marae, we went for a walk in the bush - we found someone there in the bush!
Some pictures from last year. It's minerals that have been deposited by the Geyser that gives white colour. Will we see geyser?
Here it is, on time as scheduled!
Actually, they put some kinds of salts in the geyser to encourage the eruption on time (lot of people waiting to see)! It would erupt naturally, but for this geyser, it cannot be predicted when I believe.
The inspiration for my photoblog has come from looking at the many beautiful pictures in the photoblogs, some of which that I love to follow.
Here, New Zealand is not my native land, and I continue to be suprised and fascinated by the many and varied wildlife here, flora and fauna. It is said that New Zealand has stunning scenery and I have found this to be true.
By creating this photoblog I'm presenting some of the beautiful scenery and fascinating wildlife that I am enjoying here and share it with anyone whom would would like to join.
