My post today comes to you from the Beehive in Wellington. This is the affectionate name we New Zealanders call our parliament buildings because of its shape.
The Beehive is the round building and the one on the right is Parliament House.
1. The building was designed by British architect Sir Basil Spence.
2. It’s in Wellington, our capital city.
3. The building was opened by Queen Elizabeth II.
4. It’s ten stories high.
5. You can wander around the grounds at will. There are statues of past prime ministers and beautiful gardens.
6. You can also do a free tour of the interior (after a security check) and sometimes you’ll get to see and chat with John Key, our prime minister. This, according to our guide on the tour I took.
