Maori Lady Dancing at Port Aventura

Maori Girl Dances at Port Aventura [enlarge]

A maori girl dancing under the sun at Port Aventura amusement park, her dress flashing with colors and her hands waving gently at the sound of traditional music. I have always wondered how they manage to have such wonderful looking skin all year long considering they are living in Catalonia. It must be something in their genes I guess. Anyway, if you visit the park don't miss their show, it is a must-see.

Update and correction: Thanks to the kind observation by Amy of Maungaturoto Daily Photo, New Zealand, the lady is definitely a Polinesian dancer. In fact, if I am not in a mistake this show was called Aloha Tahiti and the whole theme area of the park is called Polinesia! Either I have to quit on booze or take a good rest and stop writing my posts so late at night. The only explanation I can find to this terrible mistake is that the dance, specially the men's dance looks very similar to a maori dance at least to the European eye. As my intention is to inform and not to misinform I am happy someone like Amy helped me with this one.


  1. she looks beautiful, and the colors in this photo are fantastic! - Amy

  2. Are you sure she's maori? She looks more polynesian to me but anyway it's a delightful photo :-)

  3. She's Gorgeous! Nicely shot! A very beautiful photo!

  4. It's a lovely photo. Gorgeous colours and so clear.

  5. It's a lovely photo of a lovely woman and I would love to see her dance!

    Re: your comment on Cedar Key DP - I'm on the two Spanish blogs by way of invitation and post there only occasionally...and I know very little Spanish (but I'm trying to learn)...

  6. I've done the same thing, Carlos...usually late at night...then I read what I wrote in the morning and think, "Huh? Who the hell did that? Doesn't make any sense!"

    That said, you have offered a lovely photo of a lovely woman who I would love to see dance!

    Re: your comment on Ocala DP -

  7. Olá Carlos! Tens um espaço maravilhoso, com belas fotos, porém seria bem melhor se colocasses um tradutor, pois ficaria mais fácil para entender e comentar.



  8. So long as people are respectful I love to be corrected when I get things wrong. Alas some people take offence when corrected which is a shame. Great photo.
