Awesome !👍

"....Our conversation about stars made me realize it was time to meet Benny, my guide from Star Treks tour company, who was waiting for me at Trillium Lodge across the island. We were scheduled for an evening hike. Before I left, Elaine asked, “Do you mind if I sing you a quick Māori proverb?”

Elaine took a deep breath and closed her eyes. When she opened them, we made eye contact, and she began to sing in a soft tone.

“He aha te mea nui o te ao / He tāngata, he tāngata, he tāngata.”

Elaine smiled before repeating the words. I smiled back. Then she taught me what the proverb meant: “What is the most important thing in the world? It is the people, it is the people, it is the people.”

My feet squished in the swampy wetlands as Benny led us to the Kaitoke Hot Springs. Behind me were Benny’s childhood friend William and Carol, a photographer who had moved to the area from Auckland a few years back. As we passed beneath tall umbrella ferns and thick kānuka trees, they asked what I thought of their home.

“Well, I’ve noticed that everyone waves at each other’s cars in passing,” I said.

They all laughed. Benny explained that there are different waving “styles,” including the peace sign, the full hand wave, and the nod and smile.

We reached a clearing near the hot springs just before sunset, and Benny laid out a home-cooked dinner that his wife, Eve, had prepared. We devoured freshly foraged mussels with brown rice, and fresh lettuce mixed with bell peppers and carrots. After we ate, we took a long, moonlit soak. I leaned back against the earthy edge of the pool and concentrated on the cloud of steam rising from the water. While the lower half of my body simmered, a light drizzle cleared the smell of sulfur in the air and cooled my upper half.

On the walk home, we stopped along a boardwalk built to help hikers traverse the thick swamp. There, we had an unobstructed view of the sky. We sat down on our backpacks while Benny prepared peppery kawakawa tea from an endemic plant used by New Zealand’s indigenous people to treat digestive issues.

“How wild is it that Māori navigators virtually transformed this night sky into a compass?” William said. We tilted our heads back to take in the thousands of glistening stars."
