[travel] A few random thoughts on being in New Zealand

  • It's cold here. Not just the weather, but inside the buildings.

  • These Kiwis all drive on the wrong side of the road. Which is admittedly better than only some of them driving on the wrong side of the road. I'm finally learning to look the correct direction on street crossing.

  • I have yet to meet a New Zealander I haven't liked.

  • There are more Americans here than I expected.

  • Wellington is incredibly clean and pretty.

  • The food here is quite good, if a tad pricey. And some of it is very different from what I'd find at home. That never surprises me in non-Anglo countries, but it has surprised me here.

  • In another life, I could have lived here.
