Re: What's your native language?

Life here is pretty good actually. Its a safe environment to raise the kids. Many moms are at home too so there is playdates etc and everyone know each other. I love it.

Re: What's your native language?

How about the clothes? I suppose you're not free to wear tee-shirts and such?
I lived 4 1/2 years in Egypt a long time ago. I was quite free to do whatever I wanted but wouldn't go around wearing shorts or with uncovered arms as I didn't want the locals to pester me.

Re: What's your native language?

Lekkerstuk I thought you are afrikaans when I saw your screen name. In my language it says "yummy piece" as I am sure not far off in hollands. I was just mentioning that flemish is apparently the closest to afrikaans of any language.

Sylvia, we wear regular western clothes, you can go without sleeves although I tend not to go too public without at least a cap sleeve (more about hiding fat arms than anything else though). Here the locals really are just like us. Its more the workers that might pester you but then I dont really walk around in labour camps etc. So they dont bother me.

Then I can understand why you love it so much there, Brunilda. I don't think it would be as enjoyable if you couldn't live the way you want.

English is my first language, but I can find trouble in several other languages also

My native language is Hungarian, but I am more comfortable with techtalk in English. (I don't even know all the PS tools' names in Hungarian...)

Same with me about technical terms. I have no clue what they are in French...

Re: What's your native language?

I'm from Germany and try to speak correct and fluent German
I'm also fluent in English and know a little French. Enough actually to have successfully taught two lovely old french women how to work the parking ticket machine. In France.
