Reckon there's a chunk missing from the story - good to see the photo of the Maoris arriving in their wee kayak, I missed seeing it arrive on the day as I'd spent too long in the loo queue.  I did watch the haka though, including a couple of brave athletes facing off against the Maoris without flinching.  Great way to start a race!

whoops the missing section!

We watched the elite swimmers come out the water, an ex Olympic swimmer out first in something daft like 45 mins, Cameron Brown, NZ ironman hero was 3rd or 4th. We headed into town for a coffee and muffin and saw 2 pirates head out on the bike.

We then headed out to the Huka falls and a natural pool where the dam is opened and it fills up in about 30 mins

We also went to craters of the moon, a geothermal park with lots of steam and bubbly bits

Nice report from the 'other' side of the fence Jellybabe and great pics too.

I missed the whole Maori thing too for the same reason (but a different Q) as aanders.  Another good reason to go back and do it again cos I'm sure it would've made me go a lot faster
