Photographer's Note

This is my 100th post from New Zealand. As a farewell to this beautiful country Maori culture, something that was for me the most important on this trip.
On the upper pictures the Maori couple. In other photos the views of the Hotunui - an entire large carved meeting house built in 1878 at Thames.

The Auckland War Memorial Museum Tāmaki Paenga Hira is one of New Zealand's most important museums and war memorials. Its collections concentrate on New Zealand history (and especially the history of the Auckland Region), natural history, and military history.

The museum is also one of the most iconic Auckland buildings, constructed in the neo-classicist style, and sitting on a grassed plinth (the remains of a dormant volcano) in the Auckland Domain, a large public park close to the Auckland CBD.

The museum houses a large collection of Māori and Pacific Island artefacts, including Hotunui(an entire large carved meeting house built in 1878 at Thames), and Te Toki a Tapiri - a Māori war canoe from 1830 carved by Te Waaka Perohuka.
I hope you will find it interesting.

The reason that I posted so many pictures from this trip is that it was rather exhausting financially, very far and after that, I spent more than five months at home without traveling! Incredible. But now I start the autumn excursion season.
