The journey to Sulphur City

We left at just after nine and had a journey north in idyllic weather. The snow covered mountains, for once, were not shrouded in mist and they looked beautiful beyond words. Likewise our brief stop at Huka Falls. There's nowhere like New Zealand. We're blessed here with a unit which has a separate double room for big people away from little people, who aren't actually that little any more. We'll be having a look around just as soon as we have finished our coffee. No particular plans for today.

Surprising spectacles

Someone said that Poly Pools had burnt down, but that didn't seem to be the case. We had a luxurious boil in one of their pools before we went off to tea. I was astounded to see a licensed Wimpy Bar. I don't remember seeing one at all for years, let alone a licensed one. But there are other notable things here, not least the considerable evidence that the Asian economic crisis is clearly Over. We also noted the Blue Baths have reopened, and we will go there another day. Mr India here is OPEN!
