Many nations have had their Foreign Affairs diplomatic laundry aired via wikileaks regarding dealing with the USA. Via the New Zealand Herald, here’s some links. Hardly riveting news but none-the-less a good insight into how New Zealand and US relations have been seen in the past –and how they are improving in the upcoming future:

    Great website – nice to discover it via this page when I was looking for pictures of New Zealand.

    Unfortunately the picture used to illustrate the page is not of a NZ scene but I’m guessing one from the Canadian or US Rocky Mountains. It does come from the site you credited – i.e. “Lady Summers tour of NZ” but she was wrong.

    But thanks for the interesting stuff you have on your site. I’ll be back.



    PS Have you read about the “Wellywood” controversy in Wellington at the moment? Worth a post I should think.
