I'd say it's time to wrap yourself up in your duvet and get a netflix subscription, but the whole place is built on a swamp and it's only a matter of time before your condo falls around your ears too 🤣🤣

Its crazy...  You’re not safe anywhere in this country.

 

It seems you take more of a chance every time you go anywhere in this country than we do in our home countries. 

 

Either I’m paying attention more to these additional risk, especially now I am a parent, or, these events are happening a lot more or they are receiving more media attention.

I'm pretty sure that I'll meet my end in a traffic accident. There have been something like 20 accidents within 500 metres of my house, on a long straight road, that have involved death and lost limbs.

 

Another worry is how much I'll have to pay after hitting a motorcycle with no back light at night. Every time I go out after dark I'll see three or four in just a 10-minute drive. Actually, I refuse to drive here. My wife does that and she's an excellent driver. I have no idea how that happened.

There are so many 7/11s in this country that it's a wonder that ever crash doesn't end up with a vehicle hitting one.  There seems to be one 300 metres, on every road.
