This is actually the first time I got to hear you and get to know you better and I like what I hear @kafkanarchy84.
That is why I love my steemit friends too since they do support and understand me more than my own family too, since we (me and my husband) have always been the crazy ones in our family since we also try to run away from the rat race system and all the lies and the wars and what lie that is etc.
That is why we also moved to Central America from Canada to get a better, free, happy life.
I really enjoyed listening to you and I also love @canadian-coconut who also has been my greatest support and is just absolutely amazing.
Have a great day @kafkanarchy84


Where did you end up settling? I've been looking at Panama or Costa Rica.


We are in El Salvador right now and we absolutely love it. We love the beautiful people, the culture, the tropical fruits, the hot weather, the beaches, the freedom and you really realize what life is all about and you really enjoy life.
I have never been in Panama or Costa Rica but I bet you would love it and I wish you all the best.


I keep hearing good things about El Salvador and will have to check into it further. Thank you!


No problem and I hope that one day you will check it out for yourself.
Wish you all the best.

Introverted?! My ass! Not when you got a few chuhai in you ;)

Yeah ;)

I'm glad steemit has a lot voluntaryists too. It has made my life change for the better. Thank you, and you all.



It's hard to explain in words how wonderful it is to find other genuine friends.

Another great conversation between two freedom loving people. Which I think you will like. Thought I let you know.


Maybe you can have one of them on some time...or so.

Everything you said is awesome about japan. However, Japan is not a heaven on earth as a lot of people say.
In Japan, people suicide a lot because of work pressure.
In Japan, the majority of young men and women do not get married, means no children, means genarations wont get renewed.
In Japan, you find drunk people in the atreets laying down, not only because they drink, But also they get exhausted at work and want to drink to forget a little but. But they end up in sleeping in the streets.
That's why I hate Japan, this is not a hard work but self destruction.
I hope I didn't say anything wrong, I am sure I didn't.


You’ve missed the spirit, in magnificent fashion.


Perhaps it is time they throw off the debts their government has burdened them with?

ah I can't believe I didn't catch this before now, you are a great person Graham and I have a lot of respect for what you do and what you stand for, if I ever get to Japan I would definitely come say hi and if you ever get over to Europe make sure you come visit me.
The people who really want to make a difference are not in it for themselves and that s why they don't see the fame and success, cos it has nothing to do with ego but all to do with heart and you got plenty of that my friend xxxx
