So, the transition and meeting new people helped you to settle down?

It did help and I think the ability to go and do studies when you want and where you want and not be told. And I actually had a culture shock. I thought it would be easy because South Africa, especially Durban, is more English because that's where the English first landed before the Afrikaners. And I thought 'Oh, it's more English, South Africa.' But I had a culture shock because I hadn't bargained for the fact that everybody can go anywhere in the shop. I was constantly looking up to see which door I was going to get in and it was awful, it really was. It took me a long time to get used to it.
