We arrived around 7:00 this morning at the port of Mount Maunganui outside Tauranga, New Zealand. Our tour operator, Indigenous Trails was ½ hour late picking us up and it was downhill from there. We spent about 1 ½ hours at the Whakarewarewa Thermal Village in Rotorua which was nice and the rest of the day was pretty poor. They even took us to a place where they are creating some type of religious camp for the afternoon. I decided that I would leave if they started serving Kool Aid….. I won’t be doing anymore tours with that bunch. Tomorrow we will be in Auckland, New Zealand. I don’t have a tour so I will play it by ear….
