Only 5 weeks left! It's getting time to step up the thesis process seems :>
And after 4 months and cycling throughout Canterbury and driving around the South Island, I finally found a different and VERY important driving rule difference between NZ and Canada... besides riding on the other side of the road. When turning left (right) at an intersection, the person crossing your lane, ie. turning right (left), has the right-of-way!! Opposite to everywhere else it seems, and a source of most intersection accidents with foreigners.
