Kia ora koutou for New Zealand

Currently a student photographer just starting out with digital coming from 35mm. Luckily i stumbled onto this wonderful community as so many here are really knowledgable and willing to share....kinda regret paying those university fees now

Hi again, its the native tongue of New Zealand or Maori we all had to learn to speak or sing songs in maori in primary and intermediate school....Kia Ora means "to greet" or "greetings", Koutou means "all" or "everyone".

Kia Ora Koutou from* Aotearoa! (Long White Cloud = New Zealand)

I see! Koutou, do you say it "koo-two" or "kow(like go) tow"?

Welcome Kaimarx. Good to see another member from Auckland. There are a few Kiwis on the forum but they seem to be from the windy part of NZ. Looking forward to see some of your photos.

Cheers

Eddie

Kia ora Kaimarx! I visited your beautiful country back in '97 and fell in love with it. I'm hoping to go back again some day. Until then, I'll just live vicariously though your and mingdie's pictures!

Man, don't plant things like that in my head! At least now I have a silly way to remember Kaimarx' name now.

Kaimarx - thanks for the quick lesson!
