Hi Amal

Ons gesin bly in Maputo al vir twee en n halwe jaar en as my man se kontrak klaar is hoop ons om ons nuwe tuiste Aus te maak .

Van ons besluit het op Aus , so twee maande terug boer ek op google en was ek baie gelukkig om op SaAustralia af te kom. Dankie vir al die forums dit help met baie veral as jy nog in die donker oor als is .

Ek dink dat as jy eers uit Sa is jy nie maklik terug gaan nie , wel dis hoe ek voel , ander voel dalk anders , dis lekker om so af en toe terug te gaan om te kuier maar om weer daar te bly ek glo nie . ( Net as dit nie anders kan nie by gese.)

Groete

Hallo Ekke! Ek gaan maar in Engels skryf.

Welcome to the forum, I hope you meet lots of friends here and get a lot of information. Where do you want to move to and do you have a family already? Watse werk doen jy en jou man? Of werk net jou man op hierdie stadium?

Anyone who has lived in Maputo for 2 and a half years already has 'hare op hulle tande' and I take my hat off to you and your family. It's not an easy place to live, I'm sure.

I've only been there once, in 1998 (before the massive floods and all the subsequent foreign investment). It is actually a beautiful place, but the people were so impoverished and the buildings were still bombed out and looked really bad. We stayed at the Polana and I actually felt bad, because it's this 5-star luxury (the Queen of England was also staying in the same hotel as us - we went on business), and then you go out of the gates and it is absolute poverty like I've never seen before or since....then you go back in at the end of the day and it's all USD 30 salads and pool-boys... :hug: I remember the amazing electric lightning storms over the sea and the fantastic seafood paellas and prawns :ilikeit:

I am interested to hear what it's like actually living there nowadays? If you get some time, let us know?

Good luck with your application & regards, Bronwyn

Hi Ekke, :blush:

Welkom hier by ons! Hoop dinge werk uit vir julle sodat julle gou in Aus kan wees.

Ek sal ook graag weer in SA wil gaan kuier, maar bly? Nie sommer nie! Ek mis net die Wildtuin want ons kom van daardie wêreld af. Ons is baie gelukkig hier in Aus, en na die Laeveld, is die Aussie hitte nie so 'n groot probleem nie.

Groetnis,

Dreamy

Hello Ekke! (sounds weird - a bit of self talk :wacko: )

Welcome to our cyber community! I'm sure after Maputo Aus will be quite a change - and I agree few people move back to SA from Aus!

Catch you later!

:wacko: Wacko BUG

Good Day All

Bronwyn after 2 years i have got " Job se genade " . My husband is a bean counter and we were hoping to settel in Western Aus . Polana is still the place to stay but they have moved the casino to the Marginal near Costa Do Sol . Moz is moving to upliftment but at a snails pace and poverty is still bad bad bad .

I will mis the bush very much just as Dreamy says the smells after a rain storm and all the animal noises when the sun goes down . But they say the Aus outback is just as nice .

Chatterbug with a name like Leylani do you blame me for using Ekke . I dont know what my Mom were thinking ? And thats the only word I can spell .Ha ha ha yes I am blond .

Thanks for all your friendly words and advise you guys are great .

Regards

Ekke

Lani,

I don't want to push you in any particular way, but the Australian bush isn't so bad.

I travelled to South Africa in 1985 and the country townships there were not unlike Australian country townships in many ways.

If you are at ease with the bush and country town life in South Africa, then the bush and country town life in Australia will have something in common.

It is easier to get into Australia if you want to live and work in a country town.

You could do worse! . . . . . you could live in the city!

Nee ek het hulle nog nie ontmoet nie . Maputo en veral Matola is vol mense van Sa ek het iemand gehoor se hulle reken in Matola alleen is daar +- 50 000 Suid-Afrikaners . Hoe waar dit is, weet ek nie maar orals waar jy gaan hoor jy mense afrikaans praat .

Groete
