Subject: RE: BS: Six Degrees Of Separation
I've just got back from New Zealand, where I was visiting my mother who lives in a town in South Auckland, called Papakura (go on, try finding it on a map!). Whilst in Hastings, UK, at the Jack in the Green Festival last weekend, I was talking to a lady whom I've known (through JITG) for about 10 years. She spotted my NZ bone necklace and asked where I got it, as she was a Kiwi by birth, a fact I had been unaware of as she has little or no accent. When I said I'd just got back from visiting Papakura, she told me that's where her father lives!
