|After our little jaunt up a glacier, we set off straight away to get to Hokitika, a small town famous for Greenstone or Jade. It was on the way toward the road that would take us to the Eastern Coast, so was ideal really.
Was quite a cute little town, with a nice clock tower stood in the middle and some gothic style churches.
We visited some Jade factories, and boy is that stuff heavy! They had a slab of it in the middle of the floor, and I tell you, you wouldn't want to drop it on your foot!
