rights if you right yeah so it’s a very free and what’s the word it’s a very
open country yes it’s yeah it’s open and welcoming

first impressions when you arrived here off the plane you would have arrived in
late July August yeah it’s hot right you can’t describe the feeling for people
who are watching because it’s hard to put into words right I really like what
either said when she got off the plane what was that
you keep on walking and you expect that the heat will disappear because you
think that you stepped out in front of a an airplane turbine engine and

don’t like it and listen it’s about to know the right people I know my people
the cultural shock is it’s it’s a thing to consider to move here right like the
things in Europe are completely different that ok it’s a kind of
cultural shock chakra we talking what’s the the mosques these notches the way
they live the way they understand family really 8 where calls is completely
different the lifestyle that you have too much outdoor activities or it’s not
that open-minded dancing cultures you’ll find that here yeah lots of things but
it’s about to know the right people yeah and find in your your place your to
do think wait so it’s about finding a lifestyle which works for you which
actually ok definitely it is to find what you’re passionate about what’s the
meaning or reason to be here that something that fulfill you yeah by day
okay and then finding the balance to always having the chance to travel where
it is a very nice spot in the middle of the earth to jog around
