- Christchurch does garbage right. Everyone gets three containers - green for organics, yellow for recyclables, and red for landfill waste. One week they pick up organics and recyclables, the other week they pick up organics and waste. The city council runs this service, which is one place where government can be a lot more efficient than private industry - you don't get five different companies running their trucks down the same street.
- The postal service delivery people ("posties") ride bikes to deliver the mail. We saw a postie hit a two-inch slot with a large envelope on the ride - pretty impressive.
- There are a lot of beautiful places in New Zealand, but as with any traveling it's really the people that make it interesting. We're thankful for all of the opportunities we had to meet and interact with new friends in Christchurch and elsewhere.
