Since the weather in Auckland was still unstable, me and Mexican-Canadian couple went to visit Auckland War Memorial museum.

Above the photo on the wall: "They whom the inscriptions upon these walls commemorate are those from the Provincial District of Auckland who at the call of king and country left all that was dear to them endured hardness faced danger and finally passed out of the sight of men by the path of duty and self sacrifice giving their lives that others might live in freedom. Let those who come after see to it that their names be not forgotten."

Sir Edmund Hilary also has a place in a museum

After the tour, I decided to take a quick look at some nearby "mountains" or more accurately, remains of the volcanoes.
