A to NZ

Well, the historic power station wasn't much to write home about. Here in Kiwiland, though, they appear to have similar obsessions.

Driving down from Auckland to my next gig in Wellington, I passed through Huntly, a coal mining town which is dominated by an enormous concrete construction which turns the coal into electricity. Right on the city limits, they've placed a giant sign which says: 'HUNTLY POWER STATION - OUR TAJ MAHAL!'

Hmm, that gives me an idea. Anyone for: 'RICHBOROUGH - OUR GREAT WALL OF CHINA'? It's got to help the tourist trade, surely?

I had to laugh when I drove past this sign on my way to rotovegas...

Who honestly thought this sign was a good idea?
