Back at the spawnpoint
I’m now in Wellington, New Zealand, the city I was born and grew up in. In the past two days three people have asked me where I’m from or how long I’m staying in Wellington. So apparently I don’t exactly ooze “New Zealander” anymore. Which is fair, as my accent has drifted pretty far away from how people speak here in my efforts to be intelligible to people from the other countries I’ve lived in over the past nine-ish years. Still, have to say it feels weird to be a stranger in what I assumed was “my city”.
Anyway, here I am. “Home.” Regular programming (ha ha) begins again.
