What were the biggest and smallest places you’ve lived in?
Submitted by Jack Yan.
Lake Waitaki, which is a tiny hydro town on the Waitaki River. There were two streets and about ten houses when I lived there. The electricity company has since removed all the wooden houses, leaving only five or six old stone houses, so it's even smaller now.
Vancouver. Vancouver city has about 500,000 people living in it, but greater Vancouver has a population of around 2 million – about twice as many as the whole of the South Island of New Zealand.
