I could give you a million examples of the corruption & crime that happen here everyday, but you likely wouldn't even believe me. One of the reasons I haven't posted about them often is that us South African whiteys are notorious for endlessly whinging about crime. And there's a huge local movement that pounces on any "crime whingers" dennouncing them as anti-patriotic and even racist.
OK, so BiPolars are always gonna live with depression, but that doesn't mean you must ignore environmental factors altogether. And this (deteriorating) situtation in my country grinds you down a shit load more than you realise (BiPolars & muggles alike).
So we're heading for our South Pacific island. Lots of South Africans (including family) there already, and very, very happy. It is a stunningly beautiful country. Hoping Miss L will come too. And hoping to FCK, that our application is accepted - its one of the last english speaking countries that we can get into.
As to the future of this blog: You've probably noticed that I'm taking a break. For nearly 2 years now I've posted practically ever day. I'm now trying to ween myself off 24/7 onlining. Twitter is DEAD. I'll never go back there. And for a while I'm not sure how regular posts to this blog will be. No fixed plans. It won't end, that's for sure, but posts are likely to become more sporadic. (and you'll be able to witness first hand, the account of a family migrating from one country to the other end of the world...)
