Towns.. bound to have a few here in New Zealand I guess.. I just can't recall them off-hand.
Places in general, well them we got.
The Tutaekuri River runs just a few miles from here. Kuri is the Maori word for dog, and tutae means sh... umm.. excrement. It's literally the dog poo river. And yeah, it often runs a bit brown.
My guy went hunting in the Urewera mountain ranges - a huge national park here - a couple of months ago. I just learnt last week that Urewera is Maori for 'burnt male body part that rhymes with venus'. Yum.
Truth Or Consequences NM is named after the old U.S. TV game show. Originally called Hot Springs, it changed its name in 1950.
