A couple of weeks ago, I went with my friend and colleague Shrikant Patil to New Zealand to understand the New Zealand schooling system.
I loved New Zealand for a number of reasons — its natural beauty and what the people have been able to do with the natural resources of that country. It is a prosperous and egalitarian nation of friendly people with a great sense of humor. (See “Even Hell has its Standards“.)
Gordon Dryden was our friend, philosopher, teacher and guide. I think I can do worse than point you to The World of New Zealand According to Gordon Dryden.
