Mount Eden

伊甸山好靚,近市中心,曾是火山,現在火山口已披上綠草,滄海桑田哪~

 

現場的告示牌也標示毛里語,例如伊甸山是Maungawhau,火山口是Tihi,感覺紐西蘭很尊重毛里文化;記得看過一段短片:毛里土著不滿政府的發展方案,在現代裝潢的會議室,穿起傳統羽衣,大叫毛里口號,在座官員無一吃驚、無一害怕,只是一臉不悅,板起臉孔的聽着,並無拒止毛里土著狂叫,我覺得好難得啊,不如台灣議會的打架,也不像香港狼英的微笑,官員雖然不滿,但無阻止對方表達不滿,感覺……好文明………

 

 

Mount Eden is a beautiful volcano. It is near to the city center. It was a volcano but the crater is covered with green grass now.

 

The signs in Mt Eden were written in Maori language and English. Mt Eden is ‘Maungawhau’, the summit is Tihi. Somehow I thought the New Zealand people are quite respect Maori culture.

 

I watched a short clip on the internet. The Maori people did not consent with the local government. They dressed up in traditional Maori clothing and screaming Maori language in a modern conference room. The government officers did not looked surprised and did not frightened. The just sat there and listen to the screaming in an annoyed face.

 

Somehow I thought it IS cilivisation. The New Zealand officers did not fight like Tai Wan council. Nor did not smile like CY. (CY was chief executive in Hong Kong. He was always smiling to the opponents when they are cursing him. )

 

And I like a sentence which engraved on the Tihi:

For their work continueth great beyond their knowing
