The Origins of Thanksgiving With Bill Federer

"Bill, tell us, why do we celebrate Thanksgiving? What is the story of Thanksgiving? Well, the little background. So the king of England was a globalist. He was a one world government guy with him at the top. The British empire controlled in the Australia New Zealand Hong Kong brisk ionic Canada Barbados Bermuda Jamaica and America. And so America's founders wanted to break away from this globalist one world government king. And so they flipped it and made the people became. And so where did they get this idea that you could rule yourself without a king? Well, it came from the pilgrims and that it came from the calvinist Puritans that came from the reformation and then they got their ideas from ancient Israel. That first 400 years out of Egypt, it's called the Hebrew republic. And it's the first instance in recorded history of a nation with millions of people and no king. And there's around 1400 BC up to about a thousand BC. And it worked because every single citizen was taught the law. And they were personally accountable to God to follow the law. So this period of history is called the Hebrew republic. And these calvinist puritan scholars study this so intently that they were nicknamed Christian hebrews. So in 1517, Martin Luther starts the reformation and for about a century before the age of enlightenment, you have these scholars in Europe studying, not just the Bible in their own language, but this particular first 400 year period, this Hebrew republic. And that's why they taught Hebrew at Yale and Harvard. They were amazed at coming up with a form of government without a king. And again, it's based on this idea that you teach everybody the law and then everybody walks around aware that they're accountable to a God who's watching them watch them to be fair and it's going to hold them accountable in the future.

New Zealand Only Delayed the Inevitable

"New Zealand was prepared to lock down its entire population literally forever. All they did was postpone the fateful amount of infection and death. It was a complete farce what was done, New Zealanders bought it because you were told to worship. The state and quote unquote science. The confusion of science with scientists is like the confusion, very often, of clergy with religion. There have been a lot of bad clergy people in the history of the world as we well know, some terrific ones I might add. But science and scientists are not the same thing to say the least. It's very scary what's going on.

New Zealand Tried to Hide From Covid. But Covid Found It

"New Zealand COVID deaths soar to record high as omicron wreaks havoc. COVID death rates have reached pandemic highs in New Zealand as the country battles another havoc inducing omicron wave. Once held up as evidence that it is possible to suppress the virus, New Zealand's swift response to the pandemic and its geographic isolation allowed it to escape the wrath of the pandemic. Jacinda Ardern's government dropped its zero COVID policy. Which saw the nation nicknamed a hermit kingdom last year, once the population was largely vaccinated, 8 in ten people now double jabbed. So what does that mean? What percentage of the people are single jab must be even more obviously? 8 and ten double jabbed since then, the virus has spread. Are you ready? Here's one of the great lines in modern journalism. Experts told mail online. That's the daily mail. That previously low levels of infection in New Zealand due to strict COVID curbs. Is behind, actually, should be our behind. Daily mail, writers are not known for their grammatical acuity. Or behind the high fatality rate, because the economically crippling measures only delayed inevitable infections that could have built up immunity.

The Only Difference Between New Zealand and China

"How many times have I played for you? The frightening comments of the dictator of New Zealand, an elected dictator, but that doesn't mean anything. We've elected a dictator in our country. State of emergencies, that's all they have to declare, I think that the state of emergency allowance should be removed, I understand the dangers because they might actually be a real emergency as opposed to the ones that the left make up, nevertheless, I, the abuse of something is greater than the use of something, then you get rid of the something. So my Friends, it is time to get rid of the state of emergency, allowance for governors, and for presidents. The left will abuse any possible use of authority to become a dictatorial regime, and in light of that and in light of New Zealand, what that woman did, locking up her country, China style. It was truly China style. The only difference between China and New Zealand for much of the last two years is that in New Zealand, you had a freely elected dictator whereas in China you had a non freely elected dictator. The difference is minuscule, except that I blame the New Zealand people more than I blame the Chinese people.

"Well, the prime minister of New Zealand gave the commencement address. And I'm actually going to compliment her first and then I'll tell you what I didn't like about the speech. You know, she was a very composed articulate speaker. And one of the things I took away was her tone was very nice and conciliatory and thoughtful. And I remember throughout the speech thinking, even though I don't agree with just about anything, she says, I wanted to root for her because of the way that she came across and, you know, as I'm entering this world of the professional media world where I'm going to be espousing conservative beliefs and trying to win people over. I took note of that because I thought I should really try to have a good tone and sound again sound not that it should be disingenuous. But as you know, Dennis, your tone matters so much. And again, even though I disagreed with her, I wanted to root for her, so that was something I took away.

COVID Lockdowns Would Have Been FAR WORSE Without 2nd Amendment

"Than what you saw the last couple of years with COVID of how important it is? That people are able to defend themselves against a potentially tyrannical government. COVID lockdowns would have been far worse if it wasn't for the Second Amendment. We would have been closer to New Zealand or Australia because if only one side has the guns, they get to call all the shots. James Madison, we have a picture of James Madison here. In our studio. The father of the United States Constitution said quote always remember that an armed and trained militia is the firmest bulwark of republics that without standing armies, their liberty can never be in danger. Nor with large ones safe. Now what is a militia? You see militia gets misrepresented by the media saying, oh, that's a trained force and only people in the military. Nope, George Mason, who inspired the Second Amendment said, I ask, sir, what is the militia? Quote, it is the whole people to disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them. The founding fathers were clear that if you disarm a people, you enslave them. The purpose of the Second Amendment is to be able to protect all the other amendments. The purpose of the Second Amendment protects your right to privacy, the Fourth Amendment protects your right to sell against self incrimination, the Fifth Amendment protects your right to due process 6 7th Eighth Amendment. Protects your right, the speech and to assembly. A free people must have leverage against tyrants. One of the reasons why America has a tradition of the many ruling the few, not the few ruling the many. It's because we've been armed. And for some people, they just don't like hearing this. It's an uncomfortable truth while it's what it is.

New Zealand Caller Debates Gun Law, Comparing to U.S.

"Hear you're from New Zealand. Yeah, I really just called because I wanted to point something about out about what their lady was saying about New Zealand and gun control. Sure. So we, in New Zealand, you know, we can get a gun. Down license, we get signed off by the police and then you can have it. But you have to keep it locked away. So there should be a rule in place. You guys have concealed carry here, which is makes it very easy for someone to say, go buy a gun. They decide there's no law to control this. Well, wait a minute. I think you're conflating two issues, but I'm interested in your perspective as somebody from another country like New Zealand. You say you got to keep it locked away. What good does that do you if you want to use your gun for personal protection? If somebody on that subway had had a gun and could have defended themselves, there'd be a whole bunch of people who weren't going to be shot and potentially killed by this guy. You see here in America, there's millions of people who carry for the very precise purpose of defending themselves against bad guys. Yeah. And I don't think correct me if I'm wrong, camera, but I don't think you guys do that in New Zealand, do you? I've been here for like four years and so I've seen a lot. You know, every day you see shootings a little bit of place all over the country. Right. Oh, we're going to fix this. We're going to fix this. I know, but to help me understand New Zealand's perspective, are there a lot of people do they not have concealed carry in New Zealand? No, they don't. And there's a reason I mean, we don't have like a bigger country, like here. We have 5 million people in New Zealand. Yeah, yeah, yeah. I got you. A lot of hunting and stuff, but we only have guns for that sort of type of purpose. It's not really for like carry around critique yourself like you've got to go to conceal carrying corn, but you go to jail.

"Yes, you can kind of tour around this Thornton fear, arrow valley fair, new town. Is a really fun one. And these tend to be on the weekends. I'm guessing? Yes. Okay. So they'll be on a Saturday or Sunday in summer that spread out around the summer. So just depending when you're there. Thornton and new channel, the two biggest Thornton tends to be December and newtown in the new year change bed. Okay. And then Cuba dupa, which is the keyword street, first of all. It's been a bit less of a thing through COVID years, obviously. Right. But they shut down the street for the day. And you get lots of live performers. There's usually a couple of stages that will have local bands performing and all of the restaurants and cafes along Cuba street will sit up in a stall in front of the spot and make street food for the day. And it did get canceled in 2022, but they're planning to have it in the end of March in 2023. So we shall see. Yeah. So yeah, that's a lot of fun. Excellent. Anything else we need to cover in terms of neighborhoods, things to do side trips. So I've covered off our valley, Cuba street area, cube street has night markets every weekend as well, which can be quite good. It's mostly food tracks. There's also so they're kind of waterfront area has to papa. It has a theater oriental bay in all of that. I think through the food is a huge part of Wellington that's worth maybe talking about a little bit more because it's really kind of a culinary capital of New Zealand. So there's Wellington on our plate, which is the big foodie event of the year. But there's also some really top restaurants in the city. So the two I would mention there is here Kai. So that is by manik physio, who was on she was on Gordon Ramsay's show recently, actually. Okay. As a top New Zealand chef who does a lot of Maori and Polynesian cooking styles in her restaurant. So she's got a restaurant in the mount cook suburb of Wellington, which is very difficult to get into, but amazing if you can. Okay. So if you're planning a trip away in advance, that's worth looking into. Lots of native ingredients. Things like that, lots of seafood. Just really interesting, amazing food. And then Rita in our valley, which is just in this little house in the suburb tucked away, you wouldn't know it was there. But does incredible food is more European influences there..

"That's a really good option. So you can do it as kind of a two or three day trip to do the whole thing. Okay. Or just jump on parts of it as you go. And do people are there normal places that people stay in the trip? I see that there's planning guides and things for that, but are there places that you would recommend along the route? Not personally. Okay. I haven't done the whole thing. I've just done sections of it around the hat. So yeah, I think not anywhere I could personally recommend this, sorry. That's all right. If you are heading to white it up, though, would recommend an Airbnb in Martin brough. There's a lot of sort of holiday homes of wellingtonians out there that get rented out as they're being based at a quite nice. Okay. Got it. Any other side trips we want to talk to or anything else we want to do while we're out in this area. So in that area I think winery tour is the Stonehenge stargazing set probably the main thing. But I would also recommend a side trip to the company coast. That's on a train line from Wellington, so that's super convenient. You can jump on at Wellington station and jump on and off at any point as you go. So a couple of things to do out there. You can take the ferry over to kapiti island. It is kind of privately chartered so you have to book away in advance. But it's a nature and scientific reserve. So they do, I believe they have kiwis out there now. And kiwi, the bird not kiwi, the people who grew up in New Zealand. Yes, and not kiwi the fruit. And I keep it the fruit. Yeah. Yeah. Gave me the small bits. You could see out there. You can kind of do a glamping thing overnight on kapiti island. Which is quite nice. There's whale watching tours in that area, although I would say with whale watching and Wellington. Sometimes they just come into the harbor. Yeah. So you might be walking around Wellington waterfront and see a huge crowd of people and they're all trying to take photos of a whale and the harbor. A few years back, we had to cancel some new year fireworks because there was a whale and the harbor and nobody knew how it would react. Yeah, so you can do where you're watching tours, a couple of coasts where there's a walkway that's been put in a recent years, which is called the Pikachu. Every time you say something and I think I've got to Google this and put it in the show notes. I just have to laugh at some of the Maori words because of that one I may have you mailed to me. Okay. Yeah, that's fine. Yeah, so that's a ten K track from high academic to put it all away. It is really cool. It's on the side of the cliff, basically, and I've got suspension bridges, and then all of that so you get beautiful views out to the islands. Really popular thing to do on a nice day. It looks beautiful. It is, it's really nice. If you get a windy day, this is speech and bridges. It could be a bit of a throw ride. I could well imagine. There's lots of good food that's popping up in the company coast as well. Okay. So there's salt and wood collective, which is doing sort of American barbecue, which is different to kiwi valve here. So when you say American barbecue, we've got at least 5 different styles that I know of..

"And it's about kind of 20 to 30 minutes to the summit from oriental bay and you get beautiful views all across the bay. Got it. And this is the mountain that was named after Queen Vick. Yes. So it's a Victoria. I'm not Victoria. Yep. And it's part of a bigger skyline walkway that connects the whole city. So you can walk from that Victoria all the way to the south coast or up into the hills by the eastern suburbs. Okay. So doing a bigger chunk of that walk as the great option if you've got a few days there and want to go for a longer hike. Got it. And so in oriental bay, you've got to have fish and chips on the beach. If you're there at dinnertime. Okay. So my favorite place to go is the chipotle on Marjorie bank street. And you get your fish and chips and new newspaper or your paper box and take it down and eat it by the beach or there's also some really cute sheds in oriental bay that you can climb on top of great place to get a photo. Very bright primary colors. Painted up there with the little boats in the background. Okay. Yeah, that's kind of the closest beach area to the city. But from there, you're really close also to papa, which is the national museum in absolutely worse spending half a day, or even a full day at. Yes. Yeah, all of the other museums and Wellington are taken skip those go to papa, take your time there. The scale of our war exhibit that was designed by Peter Jackson and where to workshop the team behind her and Lord of the Rings and things is incredible. You've got these mess of scale models. And it's about Gallipoli, which is the main battle World War I that New Zealand soldiers were involved in. So for those who are not familiar, Gallipoli being a Peninsula in turkey and a place where the amateur traveler turkey trip will be going in September, so if you happen to have some friends from one of the anzac countries, they might appreciate that. Very significant Australians in New Zealanders. Right, exactly. And that's in KPop. Yes, so the exhibit isn't a papa. Is that new then a new exhibit? No, so it's been there for about two years now and I believe it's continuing through to 2025. Got it. Hope that would count as news. It's been there since I was in te papa. Got it. Well, and I recall that that was a good museum for an introduction into the local Maori culture as well. Absolutely. So there's a lot there on the history of New Zealand and right from when the Maldives arrived to New Zealand through their history and then when the European settlers arrived, the Maori land was New Zealand land wars and the history since then including the treaty of waitangi between the Maori and the Europeans in New Zealand. So great way to get introduced to that. You can see things like a moldy walker, which is the canoes that they arrived in New Zealand in hundreds of years ago..

Today the amateur traveler talks about breweries and bays wineries and whales, hikes and hobbits as we go to Wellington, New Zealand. But maybe not maybe not to the day welcome to the amateur travel arm your host Chris Christensen, let's talk about Wellington. I'd like to welcome to the show Kate from Keita broad dot com who's come to talk to us about Wellington New Zealand. Kate, welcome to the show. Thanks, Chris. And Kate, what is your connection with Wellington? So I lived in Wellington for 6 years until very recently. First move there is a brand new university student and ended up living and working there for 6 years. And your originally from New Zealand as we established before we started recording. Yes, I am. So I'm from Hamilton, which is about 6 hours drive north of Wellington. And so I moved to Wellington from Hamilton at 17. Excellent. Excellent. And why should someone go to Wellington, New Zealand? So Wellington, the capital city of New Zealand, but highly underrated. It's got the nickname now of coolest little capital and it really is because you've got so much outdoorsy things that you can do there at space around the Wellington harbor, but also you've got mountains, around lots of hikes, things like that. But it's got also a bit of a hipster reputation, which you definitely find if you go for a walk down Cuba street, but that means there's a real strong foodie culture and based around the arts as well. It's the home Peter Jackson, of Lord of the Rings. It's lots of Lord of the Rings and scenes around Wellington that you can go and visit and you can also see the workshop world there, movie magic is made. Excellent. And what kind of itinerary are you going to recommend for us? Well, so I'd recommend that if you're spending about a week in Wellington, you base yourself around a suburb or an area for the first few days and then venture out of the city for some short trips. So one of my favorite areas in Wellington is our valley. It's very much got that kind of hipster vibe. You'll find things like an old video store there. There's a great walk at the pole hill reserve where you can get spectacular views of the city better than mountain vac, which is recommended in a lot of tourist guidebooks..

So i'm i've got a good picture of what's going on. The a loyal starts burning the ship. Great thing about oil fires when you try to put them out with water it combustion once again it's splashes and spreads it out and it floats on the surface of the water so now the oceans on our so you ever raised some. Some english pitches so bad that ocean catches on fire. Hail yet about cursed so they they blow up the ship. They liked the oil blow up the ship like the ocean on fire. It burns down to the whole. Like right down to the waterline dishes done. And after it finishes burning probably days. Go by the mallory. Just say this is sanctioned land. We're not nobody go near the the whole. That's a sacred area. We don't touch that because that should is very likely cursed. Yeah so it's sacred and prohibited. No fucking thank you now. It takes a few weeks. Okay all right but word gets back to the europeans. That ship well one. There's a ship missing in word gets back that like five people are being held captive in new zealand so they start working with a chief in the area to kind of figure things out to to work out safe passage more or less. Yeah figure out. Can we get in. There can get our boys and they they get somebody to go down there. To kind of mitigate getting these people back and he goes down and he takes two of the chiefs that are holding these people the one that took the the two year old girl and the current tribe and he takes his chiefs in basically has tied up.

The boyd the ship up to the harbor all the way they almost completely assure like i mean this this things in the sand. They've fucking towed. This bitch so they go board and they find a bunch of flour on their the a bunch of wine some pork. What do you think they do with it. Eat it a toss it overboard. I'll never fall. They're fully human long pig so they throw all this shit overboard. 'cause they're they've been living sustainably like they ended up figuring out as stupid as it sounds like a century or two prior. I think like mid seventeen hundred. Someone introduced potatoes to new zealand. I'll fuck our tribes and they basically go into civil war because of how quickly tribes were able to grow now that they had a sustainable food so they don't need this food they don't fuck yeah. I mean for days now So they toss all this other shit over the over the deck and It takes a few days to clear out the entire ship because this is pretty big they pillage all of its cargo including muskets and gunpowder and woo now. These bad boys are prized possessions. Because like i said they are currently going through what was called the musket wars which it was kind of just a battle for maori to get guns And fight amongst themselves. It was a huge civil war amongst all these different maori tribes basically saying hey like we're the you're on our land in everyone's fighting against everyone so defined muskets and gunpowder and they go well. Our buddies got the upper hand. They're happier than then. The taliban right now right we'll also found a bunch a musk. So one of the chiefs that they're working alongside one of the other tribes chiefs chief pure. I know i like it. Thank you doing really well. You better than i thought he. He has a couple of his own men with him and some from the local tribe. That are they're kinda ransacking. The ship and.

Whatever maui round them up and they say up to the deck and then they signal the canoes the canoes all the men on the canoes hop on board and they make all of the passengers neil and they dismember and kill every person except for five people.

Dad they are hiding new. Some heidi holes. So they're just sitting out there watching all of these people get just massacred by these maori people and the next morning Another chief from a different different. Mallory tribe is coming past. His name is tip by and he cruises pass in his big canoe expecting to come in trade with this marriage tribe.

Just around the river's bend The maori stand up in their canoes. They take out what are called. Mir's potus in axes that are covered in shark teeth. Now know yeah. I know what a mirror is or a or whatever it is basically like a club with a blade on the front and it's completely made out of jade dan and that would be something to see. Twos are made out of wood. That are the same shape in their justice. Sharp and effective. They're just not as heavy. So you can swing a helluva lot faster and you've got the light armor class on the heavy armored. I played video games. And then like i said shark tooth axes. Yeah so they stand up. They're not cutting down trees own. The maori just eviscerate these five guys and because of what they had done because they had taken their chieftains power has his mana. They eat them and they take clothing. They get it all cleanup washed off. Whatever and later on that evening at the harbour. Mallory people that killed them. Those five men on the river put on the uniforms of the englishman because there were maori people on board so And played any walk. Yeah they walk up to the they walk up to the ship. They greeted by some of the englishman. Hey how's it going him in like come on do your thing. Whatever wonder where would shipment as. Oh well it's eighteen nine nine. Who gives a fuck.

I have a fun fact of early polynesian culture to share at the end of the episode because not related. But it's related. It's a cultural thing. Okay yeah no problem.

Because you're not you're never really gonna find one. That are exactly the same. And i mean this shit if you haven't seen it look it up because it covers their face. Some people get it on their tongue. Oh yeah it's bad ass it's fucking huge and it's not back back then. When they were warriors they were fucking dedicated. It wasn't this simple. Like oh like no. it's sticking poke with alec. no it was not stick and poke. I mean isn't anything that's not with a gun called sticking poke diamond stick and what to do to my girlfriend on the weekends but not true. You don't get laid. No no she makes. Sure yourself off before you show up. They would use knives and chisels. I mean that's kinda sticking poke with a chisel poke that's it's the ol- sticking chisel but yeah they would use knives and chisels in like in some cases they would cut out the skin and then just put the ink in there and let fat ass. Yeah it's crazy like that's that's some serious ultimate warrior shipman. It's it's it blows my mind. I can like i get a paper cut in. It's that same. I'm calling in sick for the next three But like i said just super super complex imagine just chiseling. Someone's like face and chest and arms and legs and back everything that's something from nothing crazy shit now in one thousand nine in october. We're gonna make a big jump. But i think late fifteen. Hundreds a dutch explorer had discovered It's always the fucking guts. The dutch a dutch explore discovered new zealand and they kind of they didn't really start. Trade routes at that time but trade routes were existing between europe and new zealand show. Nato nine there was a ship called. The boyd and they arrived in new zealand. Meant to pick up a cargo of timber and a year before one of the ships that stopped in new zealand brought an outbreak of disease that ended up killing a ton of the maori The old chris columbus move out really though and believed that this was kind of a curse placed upon them so when the boys showed up they were all really suspicious. However the thing that kind of was like. Yeah maybe these guys are all right is one of the chieftain sons I'm going to butcher this but totta it. Surfaced t. e. a. r. a. Tara was a man on that ship and he got like he was working with them. Just kind of running trade routes but they had come from sydney so he was like yeah just taking back home. Whatever now like i said today was the son of the chief but he was expected to work on the vessel still and he was ignoring orders or at least. that's what the englishman on the ship. Were saying And it's kind of a debate on whether he was ignoring orders or whether he believed himself above the work because he was the son of a chieftain or that he was sick One one account was that tara had thrown.

That that been died before it started. Never do that again so fiery trip to new zealand. Now i'm gonna spit out some facts. That probably aren't so much facts. Mostly just me looking at one website and getting information from putting my notes so As most of you know we are on site in new zealand today and instead of talking to locals i ended up going to wikipedia up course now information i needed to so i don't know i mean we talked about before the show kind of the controversy around The first people in new zealand But as i guess the best way to put is is controversial as it is. I'm just going to take this side. Like i'm i'm not going to get too deep into it. I'm probably very wrong but As far as people kind of our concern currently aids the maori had traveled from Where was it east polynesia and went to new zealand and kinda started settling there now. There is information that they were people like in outer lying areas. That were enslaved by the maori. I didn't look much into that So if that is the case in there's more to it i apologize. You're not going over further. I'd be happy to talk about later on But we're talking about the maori today so in thirteen twenty like i said the maori had come over from east polynesia and basically started settling new zealand. Now they're viewed as the indigenous people of new zealand Just because they go back as far as they're concerned which it's crazy to me. I mean for the united states and for like american everything Or north america. I should say like like people came in fucking what thirteen ninety two fifty nine..

I thought people didn't have enough money to afford shoes. And now i take my shoes off as often as possible. And so i laugh when i met the new world supermarket. I still laugh when. Somebody's like barefoot in the supermarket. I think that is the coolest naughtiest thing ever and i've done it once because it just feels so naughty so fun and it's not against the rules there. Which would be here. No you can go to restaurants barefoot you like like they want you to be careful because you're connected to nature. It's beautiful interesting okay. Well restaurants you. Probably get away with it here. But i did. Grocery store definitely not allowed. I grew up in new york.

"Hey it's warmer so i don't know whether okay cool so by the way that fish plays the fishing ship shop that without the dolphin in open oni poa fritters and other things and then once you get to hungary i would recommend staying at least two days if not three. 'cause it's this place that when you first got there you will say. Why on earth did this woman recommend. Funder i don't know why i'm here. It looks like an industrial little town. Why am i here. And where the toilets. But there's a toilet but in fact there are a few major things to see there. One is there's a tone basin which is where like there's all these boats docked there that are gorgeous. There's little clock museum which i mean. If you like clocks go if not just looking from the outside window you could see enough. But there's a sculpture trail and quite large. And that's where. I mentioned chris booth. He did a walk and wave sculpture there in partnership with another artist if you walk around as the whole basin and waterfront cross a bridge go to the other side can take you a good hour or more. And there's tons of amazing sculptures and then the other thing that's there is there are hikes that are gorgeous. The sculpture park. It's called the who tail loop sculpture park. So it's an actual loop that you take to see that. And then i did the mount par haka walk. It was a bit long in. It's uphill both ways. That's the thing here. I gotta tell you. I feel like in new zealand like it's always hill. Even when it should be downhill. I feel like i'm always walking up and it's insane but that must be why people here are in such great shape. 'cause they're just doing a lot of walking at the top of mount power haka. Is this beautiful view of fugger. A and there's a sculpture of immoral. It's a maori woman. That's a beautiful sculpture up there and there is a cross like if you got the sunlight correctly and i put this on my blog post to another blog post about gray. The sun shines through this cross and it glows red. And it's absolutely beautiful so that's a beautiful walk and that will take you..

"They are so new that there are. I've met new zealanders. That have no idea what i'm talking about and have never tasted one or her to one and they are as i understand it working to be able to freeze them somehow. Also that they're available all year round but for now just two months of the year and they are delicious. So highly recommend that in kerry kerry itself. There are five waterfalls all of which are so. There's two of them that you can easily do in one day. So i mentioned we. We talked about that f. Sound there's far pook eighth falls and rainbow falls. And if you go down to the carry inlets which by the way has a wishing well which also is to me any town with a wishing well right is just you gotta go and so right by that inlet. There's the stone store which has a museum up top highly recommend seeing and you can also from their visit. The campus the campus is the oldest building in new zealand. Serves a lot of rich history. Right here in kerikeri. There's a restaurant called the plough and feather which is now kind of pub style and it sits right on the water so you can have a beautiful view and also eat mostly pub food and sometimes they have like other food as well. I also recommend if you like drinking have a phychi sour fit. Joe is one of the fruit that grow up here. And i think it's originally from brazil and i had never tried. I didn't know they made look her out of it. So if you're familiar with fiscus our firm like chile or something. This is that that but with joe which is sweeter and they have them at the plough in feather just had one the other day. They're really good. And then as you walk towards where you'd pick up the trail for the fire pook falls. There's also the honey house. which is i believe. In the olden times they actually stored honey there. But now it's a cafe which is also lovely there's ducks and kuku and beautiful birds right out front. That i think are used to being fed by people. And then there's this bridge that crosses over the water that's the inlet and if you're lucky to be here during rainy season so right now it's winter and it's raining a lot up here. I've never seen in my life so many rainbows which is another reason to come to new zealand. The rainbows here are stunning and last year. Some friends and i came out after a storm and we saw a rainbow. And i've never in my life. We we saw four rainbows. It was three separate vans right. Three separate bows with space in between them and one of the rainbows did the color spectrum like back to back purple on one side yellow. Whatever the colors in the middle and then it was like a double band of yellow and it went all the way out through the spectrum to the right but it was like to band together. And if you're over that bridge and you can see that. I have a picture of a rainbow while i'm standing at that bridge..

I landed here zipped around the south island thinking it would be like a three week trip before heading off to australia. And then the pandemic was declared and then i ended up being locked down here in two weeks shy of my one and a half year anniversary in new zealand. And why should someone go to new zealand. Not just to avoid the pandemic so you can't get in now anyway but it would be stella reason but i think there's a lot of reasons i mean first off i don't know if you ever saw the disney film moana but i didn't know at the time that there's some talk that it may be based on new zealand.

"Won't to wet collaborative late. There's lots of activity like The nasa sophia infrared aircraft comes to new zealand to observe the southern sky in on the aviation side. There's been a lot of support for Experimental testing there's been balloon testing and large scale the testing and things like that. in fact. there's there's even a recent agreement in in the area near christ church for a a new current space testing area out near earnings flat and so there's a support across the board in the areas that make this a friendly place. in fact we have talked to several people in moving companies here from europe that they just couldn't find a place in europe for their flight tests and they wanted to come to new zealand just develop their airspace. systems is there. danger guys could become too crowded. There's potential there. The i mean certainly We're talking just in the aviation and High altitude areas Right now it's not much traffic for the it's much less than other parts of the world but and then of course satellite orbits a global. And so there's the other concern about the increasing number of satellites that are in the sky that have both plus minus aspects of that with the stratosphere getting more crowded and the danger of space debris increasing. We need to know where it all is. So it's incredible this point tracking facilities being set up Nina esp and that's really contributing to how well we know the positions of all of the things around the earth and if you're launching satellites You really need to know the information because the last thing you want to happen is a collision which would be a disaster. I small piece of debris just a couple of centimeters in size has the energy of appiano moving at sixty miles per hour. We are often called. Google maps of space. We're building the base layer map of the low-earth orbit environment. It's a dynamic map. It's changing it. Shows where the satellites are where the debris is where the new satellites are going. And we're satellites are being taken out of orbit. The company labs in based in california has four radar tennis around the world and one of them on this on the south island here is eland and they have a unique partnership with the government in new zealand. provide tracking for anything launched from new zealand is part of the new zealand's obligations to minimize space debris under us agreements. And i'm really impressed by what new zealand has been able to do in this area by partnering with a commercial satellite tracking provider there. Actually i i hear about my friends that are connected with the us tracking system in the the us military and and they're stuck using computers from the nineties and struggling to keep up with new satellites whereas leo labs is providing really modern tracking to the new zealand government. And so i think a couple of new zealanders laptops has about the same capabilities the us space force in this area. Many many years ago. I used to work on the hubble telescope program nassar and you know you travel around america and goes all these amazing places and see incredible engineering and i to say what i moved down to. The you know few years ago if you told me. I'd be seeing similar activity here and using and that's gonna happen but he has an and the pace of is quite impressive And these are serious companies. They don't like small up. Some of them are doing quite big business and i are actually really contributing to the local economy in the regions of new zealand. Then again that's another aspect of this all of the developments. The senate in auckland or wellington they are out in the regions and there are opportunities out in the region for people to set up these new businesses. And of course the other thing we go through member is the opportunities to launch spacecraft here There's not much to south of us. So if you launch threat south you pass over any populated countries until you get on the other side of antarctica. So that means if your rockets do crash. They don't do any damage so again. Museums are pretty good. Place to be able to launch rockets into space attracting people from i think it is. Yes and i think given the amazing performance of this country during kofi Living in new zealand become a lot more attractive than the last year or so And i think if you couple that with economy that is Willing to kind of adapt the relative ease of access to government and the people who make decisions it does make this country a very interesting place for folks to come and work and you can see that. There's a lot of investors trying to move down to new zealand at the moment. And and of course a lotta talented engineers and would love to work down here in this part of the world. I think the thing we go to think about here though. Is you know the future museums. Economy exporting milk to china. You'll probably making you know certain amount per kilogram but if we stop exporting ideas to the wool. The the property that we're doing is really valuable so you know instead of paying whatever is maybe sixty seventy one hundred bucks for kilo of of milk to go somewhere. We might send kilo of high tech stuff. That's worth tens of thousands of dollars and there's real opportunities. I think here in the new economy and of course able services economy. We need to education system that generates lots of people have the talent that we need in this new era and not just scientists and engineers. You know there's also ways that folks office can contribute towards this as well designers and that kind of thing so I do think all of this activity does mean that it's up to us now to join education system. He can produce people who can serve this new economy. That's all for today. I'm alexia russell. Thanks to ian griffin erik. dalstrom and maria.
