Rendered by the New Chatterbox XML Ticker Thought about NZ too. :P Houses are not cheap enough compared to other English speaking places. NZ is difficult when it comes to housing and the housing availability. The country is remote so everything is darn expensive wallah? Malta looks nice… 50/50 English I guess. Never been. Malta = basically catholic arabs with english education! ;-) Malta is an interesting country. The language has many borrowings from Arabic and written in some Latin script [LanX] you seem a bit familiar with the region. Did you spend any time in the Middle East? [biohisham]: I can't talk about poor Saudis ... but the cultural influence of the Wahabit dinasty on the rest of the Arab world is desastrous ... yep I used to have family in Beirut and Cairo I could visit...
