"I'm gonna go to Ozzi and snatch a beaver"

Things I've learned thus far:
  • New Zealand doesn't have snakes. In fact, the only animal life they have is sheep and kiwi birds (slight exaggeration).
  • New Zealand t.v. has great commercials-->
  • Unlike for most Americans, volunteer work for Kiwis is not done for any kind of resume.  The concept of doing it for a resume shocked our guide.  He said it is just something every Kiwi does from time to time.
  • One Kiwi said it perfectly: "I love Americans, but I hate America."  
  • Tim Tams are amazing
