Maybe they feel sorry for us

Australians need to realise New Zealand isn’t actually that bad….and Kiwis can always use Clendon Park and Otara.

There’s a common refrain from people who don’t think about these things the same way I do. It’s something like this: “Why would you travel all that way just to look at poor people?”

On the face of it, it’s not a bad question. Why would you? Why would you leave a place like Australia that’s perfectly safe and well-off for a country like India, where there’s poverty on a mass scale shoved in your face, sometimes literally?

    It’s a good argument: why go to the expense of travelling to an undeveloped country when you can drive through Redfern on the way to Sydney airport and see exactly the same level of depravity?
