Friday, Saturday, and Sunday were spent in the Taranaki sunshine while eating, drinking, and listening to a World of Music, Arts, and Dance or Womad for short (I’d been pronouncing it “WO-mad” but some of the locals liked to call it “the WOM-id”).

It was most excellent and the venue was ideal. They’re putting on a world-class event in New Plymouth, trek up one year to check it out.

Highlights were the food, more food, yet more food. Kora, Phoenix Foundation, Neil Finn, and SJD for the locals. Sharon Jones & the Dap-kings, Clube de Balanco, and Beirut for the foreigners.
