    Default A reminder today of why I chose to live here!

    It was triathlon day at school. My kids enjoyed taking part even though one came last, it was enough to "give it a go."

    We parents stood in hi viz vests, stopping traffic for the cyclists....no need for multiple permits, as for the fun run at the boys' UK school. The drivers were patient with us, and all the kids were encouraged round the course. It was not that short either, a 50m swim, followed by a reasonable length bike ride and a reasonable run.

    Kids did it individually and in teams. Lots of parents helped. It was another uk expat mum and I who stood together. Both of us could not imagine this in the UK.

    Awesome!!
