I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Milford Sound

This part of New Zealand is called Fiordland, and we spent much of the day traveling through it on a bus on our way to Milford Sound and back. Milford, despite the name, is a fiord and not a sound because it was cut out of the earth by glaciers (or as we say in New Zealand, glassiers) and not by a river.

That it's really a fiord/fjord is no surprise to me, as it bears more than a passing resemblance to its cousins in Norway.

Complete with waterfalls.
