These are a few pictures of Akarora and environs. It is a lovely drive from Christchurch. The tourist drive route is very quiet, but the narrow roads that hug the hill may be a little un-nerving for people of the same disposition as my wife.

There's a good reason for that - the Aussies had just scored, making it about 50-NIL against the Kiwis.

Here I are some of Lyttleton. The ship is the new HMNZS Canterbury. You may have heard in the news that a sailor from the ship recently drowned in an accident.

Views from the windows of Te Papa yesterday







This is the Maori carving over the door of the marae in Te Papa. It was the first carved with Western tools.

It depicts Rangi and Papatuanuku
Rangi and Papatuanuku, the sky father and earth mother, were the parents of all creation. The sons of these two were the elements of life, and one son Tane, created the first woman.
