More appliance and car shopping. I took advantage of the dealers being closed today to look and my leisure without the buzz of salesmen circling. The market here for used Japanese cars is pretty good. These are used cars exported to NZ when the registration costs in Japan become excessive. They’re in much better condition than comparably aged cars in the US, IMHO. I’m closing in on a Nissan and would like to wrap it up this week if at all possible.
NZ TV 1 had on an export-ready concert featuring Haley Westenra (the popular singing phenom from Christchurch), Maori guys standing around the stage, video of NZ vistas and a “Lord of the Rings” backing soundtrack! I bet the DVD comes with Air New Zealand vouchers.
