We spent the last night at Lake Aniwhenua, which was very interesting. It was a cultural Maori experience, with a Maori tour-guide showing us around and telling us some pretty wild myths from their mythology.

I attended a traditional flax-weaving course and wove a bracelet! Love that for me.

For dinner they made Hangi; it’s a traditional way of cooking food in a firepit with heated stones, underground and sort of buried. The food was smoked and steamed essentially to perfection - it was so good. Tasted even smokier than things from the smoker! They also made fried bread, which was just fabulous. We ate out of little woven bowls, with our fingers, so I had way too much fun.

Needless to say, I ate far too much.
