This might seem like a random fact to you but consider the following:
- When you move to another country there is nobody who knows who you are or what your name is. You are completely anonymous and alone.
- Pretoria - the city proper - is a city of 1.5 million people.
- It takes time to build relationships and even longer to make lasting friends.
- I think it was five months before I went to the shops (near my house) and ran into someone who greeted me by name.
