cont... the hospitality, the people, culture, marvellous sights. We can cope with the cultural differences, once getting accustomed. There is only love, devotion, and sincerety never found elsewhere. I enjoy the many pleasantries, like 'Xie Jiao', (for those of you who don't know=foot massage). Nowhere have I met such skills, including Thailand. I must say, it would be my favorite place to retire.
