Hey 'Happy Expat'. Small world indeed - I suppose that's what happens when there are only 350 000 odd people in the town - and only so many of us being ex SA!

Hi all

Just a shout-out to say thanx to Linda and Darren for their welcome and hospitality  :clap:. It just shows how great South Africans are!!!

We should all try and arrange more collective events - dinners, get togethers, etc.

Also thanx to everyone else for the words of welcome.
- Greg, Bev and kids
