Kiwi Kulture

Yesterday we had a bit of New Zealand culture.
We went to the Tauranga Art Gallery and saw a great exhibition by a local artist. The gallery is a great place to sit and watch the world go by (we weren’t allowed to take photos in there, so this is a picture of Tzipi with the program)

Then we went to see an ‘o for awesome’ New Zealand movie called Boy. www.boythemovie.co.nz

Tzipi has since taken to calling everyone she meets an ‘egg’ (an affectionate way of saying dumb) and wants to learn how to do a haka.

To show her to some Maori culture we taught Tzipi how to do a hongi (a greeting where your squish noses) and we visited the waka (canoe) and some carvings that are on the Tauranga waterfront.
