Hi Julie

I sat here with a cup of coffee, reading your posting and was smiling.

It’s always good to spend time in a new country and then go back and take a reality check on your home country. Sometimes – especially when times get tough – one tend to think that the grass actually is greener on the other side of the fence. Which is an illusion. There is no such thing as the perfect country or the best people on earth.

Countries change, people change, perceptions change. And sometimes we tend to carry an image of your home country with us that’s still left from our childhood.

I learned that people respond positive when being approached positive. Anywhere.

Cheers, Astrid
