Talking of the Finns...

I always find it interesting to see what people around the world say about Te Awamutu. Having the Finn connection helps because there's a surprising number of Finn fans who know about our town and even make the pilgrimage here. Occasionally there's the inevitable condescending comment about TA being a hick town but usually people are quite complimentary.
Here's an example I noticed last night. It's a discussion about Crowded House hitting the road. It's a very long page - I found the whole thing interesting enough to read but if you want to pick out the TA references, click Control-F (Cmd-F on the Mac) and enter "Te Awamutu". That will show you the parts of the page where we're mentioned.
