someone wasn’t impressed by the cost of uniform garb.  it was probably the ‘bucket hat’  what did it.  (or possibly the NZ Made Roman Sandal (singular i note, just like the Romans used to do as they hopped down the street)


every morning i’m guaranteed a stunning view of Auckland over the harbour bridge as my bus goes whizzing in to town.  here’s a view of the harbour with little tubes of sunlight bursting through a cloud like a collinder.  quite fantastic.


i was listening to a podcast recently that said that jandals were indicative of a nation’s maturity.  As countries become more affluent people start to buy jandals to cover their feet, and as the process continues they eventually move to more sophisticated shoes.

i love how kiwis are cool to stick with jandals so they don’t get above themselves.  that seems a nice national characteristic to me.
