On our way to the Waitomo Caves we passed through a small town called Otorohanga. It’s about 20 minutes back-tracking from the caves in the direction of Hamilton and it’s where we have found suitable accommodation for the night. But first before we find our beds we stop to look at some of the more decorative elements in the town. I am always beyond delighted to find colourful murals on what would have been boring blank grey concrete walls in any urban environment so this discovery immediately brings a smile to my face. The only annoying thing was that I was too tired at this point of the day to walk the distance down the road to photograph it closer up. I therefore took the lazy route and used the zoom lens on my camera to capture as much of the detail as I possibly could.
