When you’re traveling, sometimes the most mundane things become fun adventures.
Actually, pretty much everything can be a fun adventure, especially when you’re doing it for the first time.
I wrote at some length about getting my haircut in Panama, because it was the best hair cut I had ever had, and it was only USD $2.50.
So, this short post is just to say that I got my haircut in New Zealand today.
Mundane, I know.
In case you’re curious…
It seems the going rate can be as low as NZ$10 (US$7.35) for a men’s haircut.
After waiting somewhere for 5 minutes (would have been a 25-30 minute wait total) to get one of those $10 haircuts, I went somewhere else and I got my hair cut for NZ$18 (US$14).
Like all New Zealanders we’ve met so far, the guy who cut my hair was very friendly and fun to talk to.
However, I fear I’m coming across as rude in conversations. Sometimes I still have a hard time responding quickly because the accent is just slightly different enough for me not to understand it.
So I have to take a moment to process what’s beean saied be foh eye cahn respond.
Anyway, if you’re going to get your haircut in New Zealand as a man, it will be between $10-$25, unless you want something froofy or are getting it died.
