Sweet as Bro... "Sweet as": Second most common phrase in New Zealand after "awesome". Said when someting is rather good instead of just "good" or "OK". Often followed by "bro".

buzzing flies...

NEW ZEALAND | Tuesday, 26 February 2008 | Views [625]

i am sitting in my room right now, flies buzzing around my head. i don't know why there are so many of them in nz. they are everywhere, totally annoying. yesterday at the kebab place they had a lamp that kills flies when they fly against it. the sound is awful, and depending on the size of the fly it was louder and longer or short and quick. it really puts you off eating. now i know why kiwis don't really clean their window sills - it's no use! they are all white with black dots on them. could be cute, if i didn't know it was flies' shit. i should take a picture some time, to show you ;-)

my room isn't that bare anymore, i put up pictures, mirror (very important ;-) ) and stuff is lieing around everywhere. mainly paper, books and beer boxes. hm, a bit kiwi-like... so i really feel home. 

i just finished my second day at uni, and it's really easier than in germany. i only take 4 papers, one of them an online-one, and friday is my day off. so enough time to travel around, yay! people keep asking me how i like new zealand, but actually i didn't see a bit of it yet, just hamilton. i didn't have any time. but this weekend we go to mount maunganui beach and the weekend after to rotorua. maybe then i'll start getting a feeling for why people love this country so much. up till now i just love it for the sun, the friendly people, the craziness and the vegetables and fruit.
