From all the Kiwi's I know up here (and that's a goodly number), they will treat you the way you treat them. So, you won't be able to pretend you are still here in Singapore. :-|

you've started another thread and there were a few replies inside that you should read first, and probably continue from within...

nevertheless, i think you will find, compared to many other "caucasian countries," kiwis in general are a tolerant and forgiving people.

of course you will find exceptions to the norm, but looking at their history and my experience, i generally don't find them racist.

but going to the less well off neighborhoods (eg, refugee enclaves or drug dens) in the middle of the night is probably not a good idea.
