  1. Hi Samuel,

    What an excellent book recommendation for Curious Kiwi! It sounds like a really interesting book to read. I've never heard of it, but I can kind of relate to it in a way too.

    When my Dad was a kid, he came here as a refugee from Hungary. At school, his Mum (my Grandma) used to make him these sandwiches with all kinds of weird and wonderful flavours that were very peculiar to New Zealand kids in the 1950's! Just like Carla, he used to get teased for being different, and eating different foods. Until one day, one of the other kids tried his lunches and all of a sudden everyone wanted to swap with my Dad! He loves telling stories about how he used to get traded pies and other New Zealand treats for his famous sandwiches.

    I guess the moral of the story is, we shouldn't be afraid of something just because it's different. We should always try to keep an open mind :-)

    Great book review Samuel, I'm really enjoying reading your blogs!
