La Coruna

Coruna is antipodal with Christchurch in NZ, my old town for many years. Things you learn.

It does not seem like a tourist town but one of the Queens dropped in for a day.

Some excellent Museums but very little in the way of translation. I enjoyed the military museum and the fort which can be seen behind Kapowai.

It was the scene of a battle in the Napoleanic wars with the British army being evacuated from here. The British general, Sir John Moore, was killed and as per his wish is buried here.

The markets were full of fruit, fish and vegetables which made shopping for food fun.

The architecture is something to see.
