Day in New Zealand
Friday 21 November 2003
After an usual chat with a landowner we want to leave
to get to the East Cape which
is the easternmost point of New Zealand (first to see the light).
He told us to be carfeul and slow because of the gravel road with free
running horses and cattle. We assured to do that.
We passed several car wrecks while we were doing 90 or 100 kmh on the
After 700 stepst we had to climb to get to the lighthouse
where we got into a sweat
we had a long break at the beach.
Eastland is one of the less populated areas of New Zealead. The wonderful
Pacific Coast Highway allowes great views at the rough coast. This untouched
area of the northern island is
deeply rooted with the Maori history. Most of the people who live here
are Maori and they own more than 80% of the land.
