Waitomo Glowworm Caves
What a sight it is to see a sky full of stars amidst the polluted cities which we live in. I crave to see stars in the night sky but I always fail. I look up to the sky almost every day expecting there to be some sudden change, some ray of shiny stars. There is a feeling of wonder and awe when you look up to the sky and see glitter in there. I felt this awe when I went to Waitomo and saw the glowworm caves there. Waitomo is a small town in the northern island of New Zealand. In Maori, the term Waitomo can literally be divided into two words- “wai” which means water and “tomo” which means hole. Waitomo consists of several caves after which it is named. These caves are the habitat of various glow-worms and I explored these through the streams which go through them.
