Alright I have 30 minutes of free wireless internet. This is what I've done this week: Went Blackwater Tubing in Waitomo (tubing through caves), watched a gigantic rabbit get sheared, went zorbing (explained below), hiked the trails of Mordor and saw Mount Doom, went to Church in a tiny branch and had kena afterwards (sea eggs and the most disgusting thing in my life), went to the toilet instead of the bathroom, and threw my garbage away in the rubbish bin, took a ferry ride, went luging (lugeing?), saw an official Maori Haka done at the Maori welcoming ceremony by real Maori's, and learned how to play a 4 chord progession on the guitar.
A Maori Warrior on his canoe carved out of a tree. They said the uglier the better. He looks pretty ugly.
Me with my hair blowing in the wind as I ride the ferry to cross to the South Island.
This is Zorbing. Katie Jo, Marcie and I got in that giant hamster ball that they filled with water, and rolled down the hill! This picture shows Jacapo and Ramsay getting run over by the ball which we all got to do. It was A LOT of fun-worth all $44 New Zealand Dollars.
This is the LDS temple in Hamilton. I was trying to do a cool thing where the flowers are clear and the temple is blurry in the background and it worked. It was a small temple but way pretty. New Zealand is in a draught, no rain for over 30 days, so things aren't as lush and green as usual.
This is me in front of Mount Doom on the path of Mordor. Probably the hardest 12 mile hike I've ever done in my life, and the most spiritual as well.
This is Kena. After church the Branch President and the rest of the branch took us out to the parking lot and whipped these babies out. We all sat around and talked and ate Kena or sea eggs. It was so disgusting. The minute I put it in my mouth I wanted to throw it back up; but they love it! It was a really fun after church activity.
