The Only Place in New Zealand Charles Darwin liked…

Oh yes, the Father of Evolution hated the Land of the Long White Cloud: “I believe we were all glad to leave New Zealand. It is not a pleasant place,” he said.

The Mission House at Waimate North is the one exception. If Darwin lived in modern times, he would have ‘liked’ it on Facebook, and maybe even written a comment. So we visited it. And it’s very nice.

Just one question: Darwin’s theory was so damaging to the church in its day…. would the missionaries at Mission House have ‘liked’ Charles Darwin back?
