Waitangi Day!

Waitangi Day is the day New Zealanders "celebrate" the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi. It may be New Zealand's founding document but it's not a happy thing for many Maori, check the link for more information.

We went to a Marae on Waitangi Day, we heard a very interesting speech about Maori pride and culture and heard some young singers singing pop songs.


Nearby there was an excellent park with a skate park. That's really neither here nor there, but I had a picture, so here it is...
