It's a bit wit here!

I've been in Auckland for just over a month for work & have noticed the following:

- Despite what most of the locals say, public transport in the city is actually pretty good. If I'm feeling lazy, a bus takes me pretty close to my flat. However, my view has obviously been swayed by years of Sydney public transport.

- One of the bars I visited when I first arrived in AKL responded to me on Twitter! The bar, Steamship, is in a pretty good location & is a nice after work spot. They've even got lamps hanging from the roof!

- The NZ accent has me smiling to myself most days. One of my colleagues, sent me this amusing link on mastering the Kiwi accent.

- All kiwis I've met so far are very proud of Flight of the Conchords, and why shouldn't they be? It's an awesome show!

More later..
