I thought these Maori carvings-in-the-works were pretty neat-o.
Within a week of arriving in New Zealand, the other Butler students and I spent a night with a group of Maori people learning more about New Zealand and Maori culture. As you may know, totem poles, like the one in the picture above, often tell a story. Many of these Maoris were Christians and the stories told by their totem poles often include that of the gospel reaching them through missioinaries and other Christians, which was cool. You might actually notice a cross or two in this picture.
I really like this picture I took just about a week after arriving in New Zealand. It was the dead of winter at the time (late June).
This totem pole guards the entrance to the Maori house where we stayed. In keeping with a Maori tradition, the inside walls of this house are filled with pictures of the tribe's ancestors.
After taking a much-needed break, I turned around and took a picture of Marlborough Sound and a piece of the Queen Charlotte Track that we had just hiked. It was early spring, but the weather was already shaping up.
A great view of Marlborough Sound from the Queen Charlotte Track. Beautiful views like this one were nearly a dime a dozen as the Queen Charlotte Track followed the top of a sharp ridge with salt water on either side.
Jaws (chats) like this one in a downtown Dunedin Starbucks helped me get through the initial difficulty of being so far away from Pennsylvania.
While visiting a World War II memorial, I got this great shot of the sun breaking through the clouds.
