Auckland has been a breath of fresh air since my American experience.
The people are all so nice and helpful. And the security guards all wear these almost comical powder blue uniforms that scream, I’m soft and fuzzy, you can tickle my stomach...or something like that. And the air port is so small and un hurried, out the windows are the usual views of tarmac and scuttling people. And just beyond are beautiful flowing green hills and lakes. It is not really like any air port I have seen before.
It is making me realised how much it was stressing me out just having to deal with the people in new york in the day to day goings on. They are all so full on, impatient and unhelpful. Also, the toilets are normal hear, the sigh of relief when I realised I didn’t have to worry about the water lapping at my bottom and splashing my hand.
The first person I spoke to hear, asked me what they were like in New York. And told me how people who come to NZ from there are always amazed at how nice people are hear. It was a nice little debrief we had. I will be back in Melbourne in a few hours now. I have been thinking a lot about the Edinburg castle. Might go there with Merryon for dinner this week I think. J
