Great post

Well done Smudge Pot
I enjoyed your post. It is always good to look at things in historical context. It helps to understand the present when you looking into the past.
There are a number of things I loved in Living in SA.
The warmth and innocence of the people
How well behaved/mannered children are
The family and community centered lifestyle
How happy people are in general even if they have modest facilities

These are just a few thing that i like in Ecuador.
There are many things that I didn't like first and then I got used to it.
There is no perfect place we need to look at things on balance.

I think it is a very beneficial to experience other cultures, countries and people even if one is not looking at relocating to another country.
