Cristin said...

You know these pictures make me hate you right?

Raina said...

Yeah, Cristin, but it's N'Zilund. It has to look pretty to make up for being the South Pacific's cultural equivalent of Arkansas.

My apologies to any readers from Arkansas, you don't deserve to be compared to KiwiLand.

That top photo looks like a WPA painting by Thomas Hart Benton, one of my all time favorites. Love it.

Sounds like the hillbillys of NZ are gettin' to ya. Ready for Austin?

Raina said...

They are, Decorina, they are. Down this way they're called "bogans" and "hoons."

I'm ready for anywhere. LB has applied for teaching positions at a dozen universities. We won't know where we're headed for a few more months.
