Take hamburgers. Here, hamburguesas are really bad.
It's known that Americans like hamburgers, so again, we're idiots.
But they have no idea how delicious hamburgers can be.
It's this ideal burger of memory we crave...not the disgusting burgers you get abroad.
Dinner at Burger Wisconsin tonight. Hamburgers are better in New Zealand than in Spain...or at least I think they are; I haven't actually been to Spain, but I imagine they're not very good. Still, I can say without a doubt, Burger Wisconsin is not the home of the world's best burgers. (Or if they do live there, they are hiding, and are not available for eating.) I am hopeful that Burger Wisconsin is not the home of New Zealand's best burgers. If anyone wants to open an In-N-Out here, you would make a killing.
On the way home, I decided I am never going to be able to do a Kiwi accent; to tell you the truth, I can't even recognize one yet. I can however, do a reasonable Irish accent; throw in the red hair, and it might be believable.
