Safe New Zealand
I learnt about NZ nature and lifestyle. Kiwis made me feel as safe as how I was back home. People around us were humble and warm-hearted. There were bus drivers, shop keepers, even passers-by who were always happy to help and extremely hospitable. They were as amicable as friends and as caring as our own families.
Cultural New Zealand
I learnt about their rich culture, discipline and the habit of following rules. Unlike other countries, they don’t need any supervision to follow rules. “Cuba-Dupa” is a vibrant street festival that happens once a year and we were fortunate enough to witness it. I saw how people organise a festival with a variety of multi-cuisine restaurants, a range of stalls for everything; keeping the regulations intact. There was music, magic, comedy shows, face painting, and what not! It was an extraordinary and an unforgettable experience for me. Despite a large number of people coming, they kept it really clean. I could remember the saying – Cleanliness is next to Godliness. I understand why this country seems so pure, happy and lively.
