Well we finally saw the swirling mudpools of Rotorua yesterday. By the way Rotorua stinks(Sorry I was only talking about the sulphur smell, everything else was great.) I finally saw a geyser. I had always wanted to see a geyser ever since I had seen a picture of Old Faithful as a child.
I was really excited. The mudpools are amazing-really intriguing to watch. The bubbling streams were incredibly noisy.
I do remember being told that they did not bury bodies underground in Rotorua, as they had a habit of reappearing. They have above ground mausoleums instead. I also remember having to pose for photos right in the smelliest spots. I loved it there (I had a brilliant natural steaming spa bath.) but honestly the smell would certainly clear any nasal congestion.
