The San Francisco Botanical Garden staff LOVE New Zealand. There are a few subtle hints pointing to this fact and I’m here to blow this conspiracy wide open.
I’ve got nothing against our neighbours across the “dutch” (that was an NZ joke. Because they say “dutch” instead of “ditch”… nevermind) but surely we’ve all come to the conclusion that Australia is the undisputed Queen of Oceania. That takes into consideration all definitions of the word. But we’ve been snubbed. Thrown into a corner next to an exit.
Alright, I can’t keep up this ridiculous faux outrage. All I know is that I’m a stickler for getting lost and every time I tried to find my way to the Australian garden, I ended up in New Zealand. It must be a special maze put in for the cartographically-challenged Australians. I just found out that cartography is the art of drawing maps, not reading them. This just gets worse and worse!

I could talk about a place like this all day, but let’s be honest, a photo is way more interesting and less time consuming for you. I may have gone a bit overboard in the photographic stakes. It was fun and I was testing out a Google Pixel. Enjoy!
