Before I came to New Zealand all I knew about the country was that they filmed the Lord of the Rings trilogy there and that the Flight of the Concords are from there. That show portrays the trials and tribulations of a Kiwi folk duo trying to make it in New York. One thing I loved about the show were the references to obscure tourist destinations in New Zealand. In Flight of the Concords they had the fictional toothbrush fence. Having been traveling round New Zealand extensively a toothbrush fence would not surprise me. This is, after all a country where people will go out of their way to see “The Bridge to Nowhere” a bridge made famous for its sheer pointlessness.
