Pulling into Dunedin it was apparent why the Scots claimed it for their own. It is very wet and cold. It is also very beautiful. The channel we are following is by a hillside dotted with fir trees and tiny houses. We are booked on a tour and are quietly hoping that yet another visit to a museum is not included! We have done two wonderful museums on the last two trips. Last night we went to a cultural demonstration of Maori dancing and singing. It was interesting and at times good but we felt the spirit of the Maori people had been used in a commercial venture whose success was in getting gullible people up on stage and trying to make Maori warriors of them. It was embarrassing to watch. Today we would rather look at some of the most beautiful places just out of town. Maoris in kilts are not our thing!
