How things should be

This is what I have been missing. Strangers greeting you and initiating conversations. Cars stopping and letting you cross the road. Cars waiting for you and your kids to be well clear before they continue on their way.
The staff of Air Canada, the waitress at the Town and Country, people working as cashiers, our neighbours, with few exceptions every person we have talked to have been extremely friendly and if needed helpful. Living in Taiwan for so long it seems unnatural. It isn’t. This is how a society should be.
