The Autobiography of a Maori

Big Building at Auckland

Big Building at Auckland

A Maori was seen gazing in wonder at a sky-scraper in New York. A white man came up to him and said, "Big building, eh? If you got lost in that building, it would take you two weeks to find your way out."

The Maori did not seem at all astonished and replied quietly, "Oh, that's nothing. We have a big building called Mount Eden (the gaol) in Auckland. You know, my old man has been there for two years and he is not out yet."
