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.
Not that we would have ignored Palmerston North so far, and especially the fearless Wentao Yin helped us survey the whole height, width and depth of the concretist manifesto the rest of the world calls Bizarro Park North, but that is The Square to the proud Palmerstonians. North.

Keep calm, Dunners, I’ll follow up with the “Best of the South” these days.

“Apple – T – rain bow – trees – kiwi mansion”? I don’t get this rebus… anyway, classic 1989 NZ vintage awesomeness by the always overachieving Travelling Light.

This post is a shameless regurgitation of a “The Worst of Perth” article. The Worst of Perth is our – far superior – brother in the crime of regional mockery. Visit them to find out more thrilling geological details!

See you next year!
