ROTORUA (13-14/01/09)Wpisał Bobuszka, data Luty 1st, 2009
We left the Pacific Coast Route to head inland to Rotorua and the lake. It was a bonus to get away from the main road and heavy traffic and cycle on the road with just little lumps. At Rotorua we had a ride up the local mountain Ngongotaha in gondolas.
The 14th was a rest day in Rotorua. Culture was visiting the local museum for some Maori art and history and sport was watching croquet being played on the lawn outside.
Our first spell of really bad weather – it rained for about three hours while we sheltered in supermarket, sat in a self-servised restaurant without buying anything, hung around street corners and finally ended up in a peasent’s pub with internet. We emerged to a brilliant double rainbow.
