Mountainbiker I can tell you many ‘funny’ stories – told by South African’s that have left over the years. Some woman complaining that their husbands are still not happy if they take the children for a walk on the beach alone during the day. My brother that are questioned by the neighbors for installing an alarm system. People getting a big fright if someone walks into their house if the front door was unlocked, even years after staying in very safe neighborhood. Husbands getting upset if their wife’s does not answer their phones. Not being used to children walk to school or take public transport. Everybody will comment on how different your life is without all the stress. They enjoy their “freedom”
Family in New Zealand experienced big earthquakes – lost their house and most of their belongings. With a new born baby they still helped others. What is the saying? – What does not kill you make you stronger.
