Taking a Hot Dip

I can clearly remember visiting Rotorua’s Whakarewarewa Maori Village when I was a kid and being amazed by two things – the overpowering smell of sulphur from the thermal activity; and the village kids leaping off the bridge to dive for coins. That traditional of diving for coins in the cold stream continues today, and afterwards, the local Maori children will usually warm themselves by bathing in the natural hot pools nearby.
