2 January 2012: Lake Taupo and Wellington
Today, we traveled from Rotorua to Lake Taupo and then onto Wellington, the capital city of New Zealand. After nearly 4 days in the rain, we finally saw the sun and reveled in it on a beach along Lake Taupo. Our long trip ended in Wellington, where our group meandered into downtown Wellington for a bite to eat. Our first adventure in Wellington takes place tomorrow when we visit Te Papa, the national museum.
