The Kiwis are Going Home

We are sad to say our friends from New Zealand, who have been living here for 3 months to check out the possibility of living here long term, are preparing to leave to return to New Zealand.

Their company has made us realize how comfortable and encouraging it is to be around like minded people – we have found kindred spirits in them, a rare thing. Coming from the same country means you have much in common and this strengthens the bond. You also have a similar cultural personality which is something that you can easily loose when you live in another land and try to integrate.

So as you can imagine there have been lots of visits to our favourite restaurants, enjoying the wine of Tarija and a shared passion of great cocktails at our local hangout.

What we will miss the most is the shared understanding, love and amazement of this beautiful, wild and extreme land that has become our new home.
