A friendly Kiwi

A friendly Kiwi

They were the only kind we met. Every store owner, pubtender, and anyone we asked for directions (lots of that) seemed as if they really enjoyed speaking with us. I'll never forget the astronomy lesson I received from the owner of the motel we stayed in on the Bay of Plenty. Hurricane Katrina struck the U.S. during our trip and a number of Kiwis hearing our American accents expressed their concern to us of what was happening in New Orleans.
