One of my daily "gratitudes" is
I am grateful for the warmth of the welcome into my adopted homeland from the diverse people of strength and optimism; I am grateful for the magnificent scenery and the climate"
Of course that climate bit is very subjective and depends entirely upon my mood of the day
What's perfect one day can be entirely too cold the next!
I love the style of Rugby played, and the supporters - even those of opposing teams; I love the space and the wide open skies; I love the hospitality and the genuineness of friendships; mostly I love the town planning (convenient Malls, sensible restrictions on height, proximity, standards of services etc). I love being able to see a dentist /doctor in an emergency after hours - unlike my BFF who lives in the UK now and has to suffer with an abcess throughout Friday, the weekend and until maybe some time late today!
I could go on - but let other people have a chance!
