«The Long White Cloud»

What is the name of the country which has volcanoes and rivers of ice?

It is New Zealand, called the Land of the Long White Clouds by the aborigines. New Zealand is an island country. Most of its people live in North Island, and that is where you find the big volcanoes and geysers.

South Island is larger than North Island and has the highest mountains. South Island is very beautiful with its mountains, and lakes, and fiords.

So you can see there is a lot to look at in New Zealand. There is a lot of things to do for a rich tourist, because New Zealand is also famous for its fishing, snow sports and hiking.

The climate is pleasant in all seasons, without much difference between winter and summer.

What do the people do? They farm, mostly. The main exports are dairy produce, meat and wool. There are many factories there too.

North Island is where you find the Maoris, the fine people who lived on these islands hundreds of years before the white man came.

VII. Find the picture which describes the kiwi best, prove that.

The New Zealand Kiwi

In New Zealand there are quite a number of birds which are native only to that country. One of the most interesting is the kiwi. It lives in wet parts of the thick New Zealand bush and comes out only at night to find food.

Kiwis are among the smallest of the flightless birds. They are not common, and they are rarely exhibited at zoos. The female kiwi usually lays one very large egg about ten centimeters long. Then her husband sits on it for about eighty days. He also feeds the chick until it is big enough to find its own food.

In the past, kiwis were hunted for food, and they soon became very few in number. That`s why the New Zealand government stopped the hunting of kiwis, even for a zoo.

The kiwi is now the symbol of the New Zealand people. Small children are often called Kiwis. In elementary schools you may see posters on the walls of the corridor with the words: «Be a tidy Kiwi».
