The Other Side of the World: Aotearoa

Friday, January 20, 2006

Aotearoa

Which is of course, the Maori name for New Zealand. Meaning 'land of the big white cloud' - and I must say, very aptly named (I have refrained, however, from taking reams of cloud pictures). A side street facing one of the two mountain ranges that surround the town. I mean, hills. I have been unequivocally informed they are not tall enough to be mountains. My sweet little house The noteworthy bamboo growing on the north side And of course, a reference to my first post (really I just wanted to show everyone my underwear). Must run now, bed being delivered shortly . . . .
