New Zealand = Birds can't fly

by Tatsuhiko H.

Kiwi bird

Kiwi bird

My best impression of New Zealand is that many birds can’t fly, especially the kiwi.

Kiwi wings degenerated, but their legs developed so that they could run fast. The kiwi is the national bird of New Zealand, so the nation loves the bird and there are people who pick up the nickname “kiwi” by themselves. Moreover, it has the meaning of New Zealand dollars.

The male kiwi makes their nest and raises their chicks. Therefore, the men who participate in housework are called “kiwi husbands.” If I marry in my future, I want to be a “kiwi husband.”
