    In New Zealand, when two Maori meet, within minutes they know each others mountain, river and tribe. On the other hand, when two Europeans meet in New Zealand, the conversation spins around where you live, what you drive and if you’re working. All this from your picture, amazing… R.

    • Mountain, river and tribe – that gives completely different perspective, doesn’t it – or does it? In a way that is also a way to put people in the box and rank them according to their answers. By hearing their answers (was it the occupation or river) we assume we know what they are like (or maybe Maoris do not?). I wonder what are the right questions to ask to figure out who or what the person really is? The Maori way certainly sounds better though.
