Maori Cultural Show at Taupo
We arrived at our campground just in time to park and to be driven by bus to tour this area, and to watch their dinner show. At some point when we get home we may try to post a video of the poi dance, the three girls spinning the small balls in unison at great speed, but for now we'd recommend this show to anybody. The singing and dancing were great and the Maori folks showed genuine hospitality to a small audience of 15. Incidentally, the tall blonde fellow in the center of the top picture (definitely not a Maori) was appointed our "leader" by the guide as part of the experience. An entertaining evening.
Today we're on our way to the Waitomo Caves, as recommended by our friend Peter. We haven't tried taking pictures of glowworms with our new camera yet. There's always a first time.
