The City of Sails
I am just shocked about all your comments! Thank you so much!
I am happy you ask me about this Country and I will tell you as much as I know.
It's also amazing how much you feel my enthusiasm between the lines! I always think that giving happiness and good feelings to somebody is one of the best things you can do.
Today I would like to show you my new city, Auckland. It is called also "city of sails", in fact if you have a stroll along the harbour you will see a lot of sailing boats.
Auckland is the largest and most populous urban area in the country, with around 1.3 million residents, over a quarter of the entire population. Its name in Maori is Tamaki-makau-rau. Did you know that here there are the Maori people here? And that they have their own language and, of course, culture? I will tell you about them one of these days because I think it's so interesting this people!
For today I just would like to show some pictures we shot during our staying here and one, Auckland at night, that I found in internet. You can see the Sky Tower, the tallest tower in the city centre where you can also jump if you like (it's not for me!!!!) and the sailing boats!
This is Auckland from Mt. Eden, one of the numerous volcanos of the region.
Can you see the sailing boats??
The Sky tower from the bottom.
Auckland at night. Isn't it beautiful?
Well, it's all for today.
