We moved from California to a foreign country because my husband retired and we can't afford to live in CA now. It's sad to have lived there our entire lives and had to leave our families and friends. Fortunately we have made new friends and our church family has become our "family' while away from home. We have moved to a small agriculture community that reminds me of the US during the 50's. There is not a lot of extra income, but the simpler life is also more satisfying. What is important is family. Most businesses are closed on Sunday and families spend time together visiting friends, going on picnics, and just enjoying the company of one another. Most people don't own cars so they walk everywhere, so obesity is not a problem.
