Rotorua is a place in New Zealand where a large number of natives, the Maori, still live. This area of NZ is very active geothermally. Sulfuric pools, steaming vats, mud pits, geysers, and other active areas dot the landscape as prolifically as the trees. This village, Tewhakarewarewatangaoteopetauaawahiao, or Whakarewarewa for short (no, I’m not kidding) relies almost solely on thermal energy. The Maori use it for baths, for heating their homes, for cooking, and as a water supply after it is filtered. Gated areas serve as protection from visitors from getting too close to the scalding hot pools and to keep their means of survival in tact. © 2012-2014.
