Rotorua day 2 & 3

The first place we visited at Rotorua was Te Piua - Maori Cultural centre and thermal reserve.

This sign shows it's Maori name.

War canoe

Maori carving.

Paul our guide was very passionate about his Maori culture and was only to happy to talk about it. There was just sooooo much to take in.

Boiling mud pools.

Meeting hut.

Then off to our motel - The Distinction, very nice. We had a very nice meal which inlcuded some traditionaly cooked meat and vegies - hungi style. Then we were entertained with a Maori concert.
