Cape Gazette visits Down Under
In January, Regina Bradley of Millsboro began a 7-week adventure to Tasmania, Australia and New Zealand with her sister, Barbara Bowman. Here Regina is pictured in Sydney, Australia with the iconic Sydney Opera House in the background. It was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2007. The sisters attended a performance of “Turandot” while there.
They also learned some new vocabulary on their exciting adventure from the Maori, the indigenous Polynesian people of New Zealand. Kia Ora is a Maori word that means hello or thank you, pronounced (Key-aura). A couple of other useful words they learned was jandals (flip flops) and hongi, the traditional Maori greeting (the sharing of breath of life by pressing together noses in greeting).
