The family reunion had just come. It is when your Cousins, Uncles and Aunties come from all over the world. Most of my family had come from Australia and Wellington. The place where we would be staying at was, Ruapiti Marae. Not to far away from the Auckland Airport.
On the day we had been welcomed into the Marae, was the day that we could find out who and where everybody came from. After having to sit in the Marae for a little while, we were welcomed into the hall for the first time. When we all entered we had told to be seatten in one massive circle. It was so embarrassing because we had to stand up and say our names. Whew I thought, glad to get that off my chest, as I was sitting down.
Following that, we were finally allowed to settle in. (like see who is sleeping where) I didn't have much to bring in. Seeing the rest of the other people bring theirs in was like seeing a avalanche. But we could all still manage. This was also only day one, and we were still expecting a lot more people arriving at 2 in the morning.
