Sightseeing in Te Papa
the big conference began, we got to go sight seeing in Te Papa. If you don’t know what Te Papa is, it’s the museum of Wellington, the captial city of New Zealand. It is full of wonderful artifacts on display. If you were to compare Te Papa museum to the Auckland museum, I’d have to say that the Auckland one is alot different. Its all very fascinating but Te Papa was slightly better (no offence to the Auckland Museum).
First we explored in this big room filled with dinosaurs skeletons with facts. Then we went searching for things that we could play with. In the museum, we saw a little house and people were bunched up inside. Once they finished, we went in to find out what was going to happen. We all were bunched up in a little house and we were watching this little T.V. On it, people were talking about the earthquake that had happened (pretty sure it was in Wellington), then the ground we were standing on began to shake.
In the same house but on a different screen, it showed a lady's vases falling from shelves and smashing on the ground. My favorite part of Te Papa was when we wondered into this little corridor and a man instructed us to put our bags on the floor and to find a seat. A big white screen popped up and showed instructions before the motion rider began. It told us to keep our belts buckled in and not to take it off until the ride was over. This ride had different things happening. It showed different things happening, one after the other. It showed one person having all these exciting adventures, some he failed and we tagged along for the whole ride. One part showed where he was swinging on a branch then a black bird flew right into his face, we all laughed! After sightseeing we went back stage to the confrence room and waited.


  1. Hi Darius,
    You've written wonderful pieces about your presentation and trip to Wellington. I've only been to Wellington a few times and still haven't been to visit Te Papa. I hope to go there soon. Keep up the great writing Son. I am very proud of what you have done and achieved. Keep it up!

    Love Mum
