Our mates are in London for a special occassion and a holiday.

One is there with our newest Knight, Sir Ngatata Love - a very respected academic, visionary and fine leader of his people.

He took with him, to the investiture, our very good friend Aroha Thorpe who has worked tirelessly with Ta Ngatata for many years on many issues.

You can read Aroha and John Thorpes adventures here.. Which included dining at one of Gordon Ramsay's restaurants..
We are green with envy.

John didn't get to the palace for the formal proceedings but did get a history lesson.

The updates are hilarious Busted Blonde. What a neat couple and regards to them I hope their trip continues to be as wonderful as it sounds.

The thing that makes it so compelling is that they are a) loving EVERY second of it and b) its all very Kiwi but not cringeworthy of a normal tourist diary.

Hell BB - Mrs pdm and I are in London and we would always be starters for a visit to the Palace for such an occasion if anyone going is short of hangers on - oops I mean supporters. lol.
