It was such a treat for me to be at 'Hobbiton'. I'm so glad now that it's now being kept intact for the public. NZ sure needs the tourist dollar, and as tourist dollars go, it's quite cheap to go to 'Hobbiton' in Matamata. Look what happened in Tunisia (was it?) where they filmed 'Star Wars'. Tourists have been going there for many. many, many years. Some cynical reporters say that surely nobody is interested anymore in LOTR scenes and we should stop flogging a dead horse. What rot.
