yes we are home again
Dorothy - Kia ora is a Maori language greeting. It means literally "be well/healthy" and is translated as an informal "hi" at the Māori Language Commission website Kōrero Māori. The New Zealand Ministry for Culture and Heritage website NZ History lists it as one of 100 Māori words every New Zealander should know, with a definition "Hi!, G'day! (general informal greeting)"
Never heard of it as a drink!
Today has been busy collecting stuff for orders, putting things away and those dreay things like washing and stuff but tonight we are going to have a curry as we have been been eating a lot of steak for some reason while we were away. I have written my part of the newsletter and I am off to cook.
