Kiwi life

Once upon a time, the local population terrified all visiting guests, firstly, with their terrifying war paint and tattoos, and secondly, with legends about their bloodthirstiness and cruelty towards those whom they considered enemies. Since then, the situation has changed dramatically for the better. People from different continents found shelter on the islands. Therefore, an amazing mixture of traditions and rules was formed, which was called kiwians, and many local residents can be safely called kiwi without fear of offending. Moreover, kiwi has several meanings on the islands, as they call it:

  • a fruit that has a shaggy green skin;
  • the symbol of New Zealand - a bird that lives only here and does not know how to fly.

According to local residents, kiwi is openness to the world, friendliness towards each other and visitors..
