Getting Cultured

My Tribe

Exhausted and ready to hit the sack, the Stray bus pulled into Uncle Boys to for our overnight cultural stop.  We were running late because we got lost (starting to look like a trend with me in New Zealand at this point).  Even though I was looking forward to this and the hangi meal ever since I booked the trip – I was running on next to no sleep and couldn’t think of a worst day to be having a full night.

So I took my piss poor attitude and proceed with the evening while ever so slightly moaning and groaning until my little heart was content.  Since we were running late – the evening started with the hangi meal before proceeding with the cultural show which we all had to take a part in.  Slowly as I digested all the delicious food (especially the lamb) and my usual sunshine self poked itself through the clouds and began to beam once again.
