Sitges Bound

 

I can’t be arsed with much luggage
T shirts, shorts, undercrackers a book, 
iPad and phone
Family reunion here I come, up at 2 am for airport
If this one is cancelled I’m off to Sheffield

Fact
A Māori performance is called a Rotorua
The performers flutter their hands quickly, a movement called wiri, which can symbolise shimmering waters, heat waves or even a breeze moving the leaves of a tree.

  4. Google knows naff all about Maori dance. Rotorua is a place in NZ where Maori performers (not exclusively by any means) perform Kapa Haka. Kapa to form a line Haka to dance. Wiri is as you describe.

    I hope you have a fabulous time in Sitges...you are certainly packing light.. but I expect the mountains of lost luggage is the reason for that!

  14. Two more points about Māori. The little line above the ā is called a Macron (like our president here), and the word Māori itself means 'of the normal type'. Enjoy your holls.

  19. As Jo says, Rotorua doesn't mean a Maori performance. It's a town in the North Island of New Zealand, famous for its hot bubbling mud pools. I've been there and I've seen the mud pools!
