The grass is always greener on the other side of the ditch

We saw this billboard in the parking lot at a self-storage place. We think NZ is sort of an Elysium, but lots of people who grew up here see Australia as even better. There’s just more there there, salaries are often higher, kangaroos, and so on.

And so there’s a bit of a brain drain here as people leave one of the physically and environmentally greenest places you can imagine to head across the ditch (aka the Tasman Sea) in search of financial and cultural ‘green’.
