The Heat Is On
Strange things have been happening in Kuirau Park in the centre of Rotorua.
First I saw this sign.
What’s so dangerous about thermals?
I wear my thermal underwear all the time in winter!
Then I noticed steam rising from the water of this lake.
The water looked so inviting, like a giant hot tub. It was crystal clear but it smelled quite strange.
Next I came across these bubbling pools of mud.
I’ve heard of people having mud baths in Rotorua, but I hope it wasn’t here.
It was like the earth was about to boil over.
Then I remembered: Rotorua sits on top of an ancient volcano.
I hope it doesn’t blow its top any time soon.
