Thanks for the footbridges (Auckland...)
Thanks for the geography lessons.
Thanks for the multitude of international artists who visit, and convinced me I don't really like spending heaps of money on live music.
Thanks for having so many sick people that some medical imaging businesses can only compete by offering MRIs at bulk bill prices.
Thanks for making me a better, more alert and assertive driver and teaching me the logic of taking maximum advantage of the available bitumen.
Thanks for teaching me the value of good friends, high paying jobs and easy parking at the beach. Along with mattresses and flat screen TVs.
The Whip Birds were pretty great.
