Living on Tulsa Time

New Zealand exports a small but steady crop of collegiate athletes. So it’s not a huge surprise to see a commemorative license plate from the University of Tulsa, but still was worth a double take.

I haven’t actually been to Tulsa, but it strikes me as somewhere that a shiny black pickup would fit right in. And so again not a huge surprise to see that license plate on this Ford Ranger, which is one of the largest pickup trucks (known as ‘utes’ here) you can easily buy.

As the truck scowls imposingly at passers-by, across the street from Pizza Hut, I’m reminded just how pervasive the American influence is.
