I have given up on any photos coming to you from New Zealand. Blogger wont take them for some reason. We are seeing great sights and also learning that in just 140 years the people here terraformed their country. Most native species are gone. Most forests are cultivated. And now they are realizing their mistakes and worry about how they can make things right. I think they can because they changed their country once already.
We have visited volcanoes, sheep farms, Gannett nesting areas, nature preserves and beautiful landscapes. This is fun and will get better tomorrow when we visit Wellington.
