Christchurch might be broken but it will rise again and New Zealand is still one of the most beautiful countries in the world I think. Last summer we went for a day trip to Rotorua in the North Island which is built in the crater of a vulcano. There is a park and lakes with lots of thermal activity. 25 km South of Rotorua is waimangu vulcanic valley which I will show you next time.
Hotpools in Kuirau Park close to the city centre
and hot mud pools
Entrance to the Government gardens
In the garden is Roterua Museum a former bath house. in the past people from all over the world came here for therapeutic treatments. Water from thermal springs went through pipelines to the bath house.
