Some random reflections about New Zealand
As we are awaiting our flight to Bangkok here at Auckland International, I am thinking back on surprises about New Zealand. Here in no particular order of importance... crocosmia grows wild on the side of the road ... the beaches are flat and hard like Daytona ... American food come in one of three varieties: Mc Donald's, KFC and Pizza Hut ... there are no Italian restaurants ... they put lanb and barbeque sauce on their pizzas ... kiwi birds are nocturnal and very hard to find ... almost all the roads are two lane ... It is lots cooler during the day than I thought it would be ... everyone is friendly.
