Matamata Wins (Hobbiton)

The Mother & The Father have a business in Matamata (they lived there for a year or so, a while back) which calls for their presence every now and again.

They brought back a local magazine which showed conceptual drawings for the redesign of the information centre once, which caught my eye, lying on the bench.  Turns out - it was very old, and the building does, already, look like this:
 Yes, yes I was giggling whilst standing alongside the tourists to take photos.
I salute their commitment to the biggest thing (and most significant money-maker) to happen to their wee township in many a decade.

(The inside of the building is a let-down: not even any cool stuff to buy.  Sad).
