New Zealand

My group of New Zealanders just left.  Very nice people and I love their accent.  They asked for a pot.  Now I know they are in the 2 bedroom suite with a complete kitchen so I think they haven’t opened the cupboard.  But that’s not it, they need a pot for tea, a teapot.  One afternoon I asked them when they were going sightseeing and they said “Well, it’s teatime mate, after that”.  Love it.

They used the “barby” one night.  Just when I was finally not having to say “I’m not sure I caught that” (couldn’t understand their accent occasionally) they were gone.  But they come back every other year so I will see them again in 2010.  And they promised me a wonderful vacation if I came to New Zealand.    Kathy
