I was told about this site by a new arrival, must admit I had never heard about it before, seems like there is a lot of interesting/useful info. It is called "Slapchips". Browsing quickly through the site, I also found a link to SACanada, I guess Hendie must have know about it (?)

Click here to go there.

  • Interests:Encouraging, motivating and supporting fellow Southern Africans in the adjustment to Canadian way of life. Meaning I find a reason to have a party! Inviting everyone to join me in a potluck, coffee and cake or a picnic in the park. I hope at these functions the newly arrived ex-pat meets a contact that can see them through the first few months and possibly become a life long friend.
    So, need help? Email me from my profile or I can also be reached on Facebook with the name Adele Mace-Putter or on Skype with maputter.

I have known about this group since 2003. In fact, I also know who the owners are. They are world travelers and I think it is amazing they have set this up!

So nice!
Once you can accept the universe
as a matter expanding into nothing that is something;
