Why do we do the things we do?

If you want to know what art people actually do in Wellington, go to Auckland. Departing the plane via the connecting bridge, we passed through an Air New Zealand guide to New Zealand, each city and major town stripped to its essentials. So what do the “arty types” of Wellington get up to in the cultural capital? It’s not good. Apparently you will find them either “drinking coffee on Cuba Street” or at Te Papa “gazing at paintings.”
