I am currently out of the country, living and working in Saudi Arabia. I am coming back after 3 yrs away, and I cant wait! I've been home to visit several times, but I was also fortunate enough to travel to the UK and USA. Please folks of RSA, if you think we the only country with crime, think again. It even happens here in Saudi where supposedly your hand will be chopped off if you steal. As a nation, we have to quit talking about all the negatives where the whole world can hear us. For crying out loud, why when I go on the net to catch up on news, there's nothing that celebrates the optimism and hope that should be in our country that is alive with possibility??? Please, the press, and the people, stop complaining. The USA have lots of crime, but they do not spend all their energy talking and complaining about it, instead they focus on good things and they report on positive issues more than the crime. I'm not saying we shouldn't talk about the crime, but we shouldn't make the the sole focus of conversation and press.... we have great weather, great people, and I'm sure wonderful victories over the odds that we should celebrate. I'm coming home, and I'm looking FORWARD to it. I love my country and I dont want to hear about crime bla bla bla.

I also spent almost two years in the UK and then came back. You know what? I loved being back. I missed my family, my friends, my language, the sun, South African humour... Yes there is a lot of things wrong with our country, but there is also a lot to be grateful for.

Paul you an idiot, the UK has murderers, rapists, psychos and many others, and as for intelligence, please. I taught there for two years and the intellegence cant be regarded as LARGE.
Yes it takes time to adjust back home, but we too have nice places and safer places, along with the ghettos and slums, just like the UK.

What on earth would you want to come back here for - i'm sure it only takes about a year to adjust

you are in a country with largely intelligent people - why waste your time coming back
think long and hard about it and best wishes

There is crime but, so there is also in the UK and all over the world. SA has loads of potential, we just have to all allow it to happen and be practive instead of just moaning.
Why not come home and make a differece?

I suppose it is like most things in life: if you focus on the negative, sure as damnit that is what you will find.........
Maybe try looking for the positives?
