Wanaka: Monkey Trees and Afkhan Cookies

St. Patrick's Day found me in a tent, eating a simple meal of rice. However, I'm extremely excited to announce I also discovered AFKHAN COOKIES, a NZ/Oz treat that combines the powers of cocoa powder AND cornflakes to make an extremely delicious, highly unlocal treat. If you've been good and eating your garden-grown veggies all day, then yes, you may have this recipe.

Wanaka is also host to the Monkey Puzzle Tree. Take note of its spikes. Now ask yourself this puzzle: How does a monkey climb this tree? Hence the name. Shameful botanical humor.
