Yesterday we drove from Wellington to Rotorua. Long drive, but my GI was (mostly) cooperating. Among other things, we stopped in Bulls, NZ, where we saw this mural:

We also drove past Tongariro, which played the part of Mt. Doom in the Lord of the Rings movies:

And we visited the mud pools at Waiotapu:

Unfortunately for me, last night was a very difficult pass with my lower GI being painfully and dreadfully uncooperative. I feel pretty crummy today, though things are somewhat settled down. On the plus side, [info]the_child continues to have a great time.

Is that a Daniel Spector I see craning over the boiling mud pools? I do believe it is! ::waves::
