Yesterday we took a stroll round the Government Gardens and up to the museum. We walked round the volcanic lake which was really strange. There is a lot of bubbling mud and smelly steam! We came back to the hostel and used the geo-thermal hot pool (along with 10 lads in their speedos)!! Last night we went to a Maori Villiage Culture show, this was really good fun. We got to look round the village and then we had a show put on for us, this included lots of singing and dancing - including a very scary haka! We had a traditional meal which had been cooked in an underground oven, ate far too much!!
Today we have been for a walk around town and had a coffee sat outside in the sun. We leave early tomorrow morning for Taupo so will be getting an early night.
