When I woke up on November 9th the seemingly impossible had happened (even though I went to bed early the night before knowing full well what the outcome was going to be) – Donald J. Trump had been elected the 46th President of the United States.
Ever since I watched Peter Jackson’s Lord of The Rings trilogy and The Hobbit, I have wanted to visit New Zealand. This was later fanned by shows like Flight of The Concords, Top of The Lake and The Brokenwood Mysteries (what can I say I’m a sucker for mysteries).
I am Mamta, originally from India. I am currently studying in New Zealand. New Zealand itself is a multi-cultural nation, with a fusion of Maori (the indigenous people), Pacific Island, European and Asian people combining to make a vibrant and colourful society.
