Here is the Winchester Mystery House in San Jose, Ca. Home of John Winchester's widow. She belived that if she continued adding rooms to this mansion she would have eternal life and it would appease the spirits of the people killed by Winchester guns. It has over 160 rooms.

NZ citys are pretty much the same you will find around the westernised world , Wellington is the city i lived in the longest , the street layout & the traffic is a nightmare . but it works in the favour of the young motorcycle rider who likes to goad the coppers
