I came to New Zealand to study English. It was a new experience to see people driving on the left side. Before crossing the street, I always look on the wrong side of the road. When pedestrians cross the street, the car drivers never stop. Most

Kiwi people aren’t very fashionable.

When people say “cheers”, they never look you in the eyes.

I live in an apartment with my daughter. It takes only 5 minutes on foot to get to school. I go to school for 4 hours every day and have 2 hours homework. Auckland is a beautiful, green city. From the Sky Tower you have a good view of the city. In the evening you can see the sunset.
