Hot springs and moari culture

Whakarewarewa is one of the most amazing little villages in New Zealand. Its name is derived from the language of the Maori, the aborigines of New Zealand. It is in the North Island, close the city of Rotorua and Lake Taupo. The most peculiar thing is its hot springs, which flow from the earth boiling. The smell of the village is very special, because of the waters and their geyser. When you enter the town the first thing that stands out is the vapor given off by the earth. It is very weird, because it looks as if everything is on fire, but the heat is from the land and waters. The town is decorated with Maori art and all its inhabitants are aborigines. The guides are Maori, and they explain the history of their ancestors in the town and teach you how to cook food in the hot springs (eg eggs or corn cooked in the water with a cloth). You can have a bath or watch a traditional dance from the village people.
