There are days when the people around me here terrify me with their drive and with their focus. I wonder if it is just the way of life in this country to set a goal, fix your eyes on it and just plod on come what may - and that is perhaps why this country is where it is today - or if there is something inherently lacking in me. I wonder if their days are somehow longer than mine, if they can simply force time to flow more slowly around them so they can get more done. I wonder if they ever have time to wonder.

Greetings fellow expat,

been following your blog for a long time now.

was passing by and wanted to say that they have had the fortune of having less troubled and more proactive minds. and they have the English imperialistic tendencies which has allowed them to virtually conquer great lands. we haven't had either the luck or dedication to pursue our goals.

oh and they're super rich. that helps too :)

cheers
