Aaahhhh! That's why each city has a CBD.... thanks guys!!!

I bought a Driving Atlas of NZ the other day, and was chuffed to find it in a little branch of Ottakers. What struck me most was:
- the 'americanised' layout of almost all the towns (straight roads, and houses divided into neat little plots)
- the garganuan amount of land with nothing on it... no tourist centres, no golf courses, no supermarkets... just miles and miles of pure open space....
