    Hey Sid ... Welcome...

    Promised I would ask the next Saffa I met after hearing it elsewhere last week ... is it true that other nationalities (aka Yanks, Poms, Canucks etc) often mistake your accent for Australian ???

    Welcome to the board Sid.
    Now don't go getting vicious on us, we are a gentle lot, or I might have to "Pile drive you!" 55555

    Good to see other nations coming on to the forum.

    What is your connection with LOS?

    I look forward to your input.

    Cheers,
    JC1

    Yes, mate, I doubt you'll sound like an Aussie to me when we meet ... but I'll listen carefully when you order the first round of beers ...555

    Yes there are a lot of places to see, once you get over the tourist/monger's time.
    It really wakes you up once you have been to the different rural area's, not that i have seen many, want to see more when I can.
    That's one of the great thing about here at TD we get great feedback, TR's and photo's from BM's and live, living report's from our expat's.

    Welcome Sid. I often get mistaken for a South African... very occasionally an Aussie... and I am neither...
    My only experience was in a pie making factory managing the gravy team

    WTTB SV. Always had a perception that SA is a pretty dangerous place to visit, partially from having family in CT, although never been.
