to collect vulcanos

After so many beautiful beaches we went to see the famous vulcanos at "Tongariro National Park" - or at least we tried to see them... Always lucky with the weather so far we got completely soaked on our walk through the park. There was not a single tree to give us shelter and so we had to find a way of drying our clothes in the bus (conversations are getting really hard once you turned up the aircondition to full power). As we got used to getting up really early in the morning we were rewarded with a beautiful view on the three huge vulcanos of the park ("Mount Ngauruhoe" severd as Mount Doom in Lord of the Rings) - but as the weather changed quickly this was the only time we could actually see them. The land surrounding them was quite vast but not less impressive.
