Sunday, July 14                                 Rotorua, New Zealand                        Day 15


            Today we took a journey to Rotorua, which is a big tourist attraction in New Zealand.  First we went up to Mount Ngongataha for an exciting luge ride to the bottom.  I flipped over twice.  My first luge was very very slow, but then I got another one which was very very fast.  Then we took a 4wd up Mount Tarawera, which use to be a volcano.  We traveled into the crater and since we were so high above sea level, the temperature was very low and the wind was very sharp.  We learned about the volcano and its history.
