For the past two days I have been travelling in the north of New Zealand with my friend Kazumi. We visited one of the mission houses where the Treaty which made this country a part of the British Empire, was signed. Among all the historical objects were some very old and remarkably well preserved samplers.
This map was stitched on a very fine uneven linen and I can't begin to imagine how this was accomplished in the days of candle-light.
And at the same place was this bed - it doesn't look as comfortable as mine and I'm off to bed now.
Good night to all.
