I had a light meal in a small Mexican Cafe the night before the train trip.
Sadly, photography out of the train window was almost impossible. The sun was so bright and the windows so reflective, the photos had three layers of images. So, a few of trees before the light made photographs unworkable, and some taken at the midway point in the Tongoriro National Park. NZ used to be world famous for its flax. It is evidently the highest quality in the world, so in high demand for linen and ropes. The tuis think it is great too - getting regularly drunk on the nectar.
