Kiwikorrels: Ferry derailed

kiwikorrelsFerry derailed

New Zealand exists of two main islands, very imaginatively called the North- and the South Island. Divided by the Cook Strait, a rough and windy waterway of thirty to one hundred kilometres wide. People wanting to go from one island to the other could use a small plane. But the majority of the people rely on the ferry.

An aluminium smelter has been in New Zealand since 1971. Aluminium is extracted from bauxite, particularly bauxite from Australia. The main owner of the factory is Rio Tinto, one of the largest multinationals in the world. In 2010, Rio Tinto made a profit of fourteen billion dollars. That includes the profit of ‘our’ aluminium smelter.

TaalsTaaltje - Piet Hein
Piet HeinPiet Hein’s name is short

Did you hear about the silver fleet,
The silvern fleet of Spain?
They had many Spanish coins aboard
And apples of Orange.


Piet Hein!, (3x) his name is short,
His deeds are great, (2x)
He did win the Silvern Fleet,
He did win, did win the Silvern Fleet.
He did win the Silver Fleet.

Anyone knowing this song is definitely Netherlands. And that is the way it should be. I shall tell you why.
