#SeptemberChallenge - Postcard from NZ - Rotorua

Postcards from around the world for the #SeptemberChallenge.
Hosted by Everyday Gyaan

Greetings from Rotorua the "hot" spot in New Zealand, city of boiling mud pools and geysers.

Rotorua is the short name of Te Rotorua-nui-a-Kahumatamomoe, "The second great lake of Kahumatamomoe") and the Pohutu Geyser is New Zealand's answer to the Old Faithful in USA.

It erupts up to twenty times per day and can reach heights of up to 30 metres (100 feet), quite spectacular to watch particularly when you stand on the bridge. I was lucky that we were there are the right time and watched this spectacular moment both from the bridge and from afar.

The Pohutu Geyser is situated in the geothermal area of Te Whakarewarewatanga O Te Ope Taua A Wahiao, meaning The gathering place for the war parties of Wahiao, Try that for a tongue twister!
