A charming example of what Kiwis are truly good at: staying relaxed – or chillaxed, if you prefer – and keeping things in perspective. If you ask me: the Agnostics present the slightly more convincing pitch here.
Our reader Peter Pieruschka provided this… angular peek onto the irritation that is New Zealand’s contemporary architecture.

Motella of the fittingly named blog “Motella” is looking behind the facades and under the guest beds of NZ tourism. He was so kind to send us some of his personal “Ugly New Zealand” shots.
Let’s start with this adorable portrait of Ahuriri, “Napier’s vibrant seaside village” with “a contemporary edge”, where “you’ll discover a unique mix of places where you can buy artwork, indulge in some beauty therapy, buy ingredients for an Italian feast, post a letter and consult a lawyer, an accountant or other professional services now based in Ahuriri.” Gasp! What a mix indeed!! Book it!!!
