  1. As I just moved to an absolute different place than before (from busy harbour town to quiet remote country side village) I found this:

    in the city, it took me 15 years to get good neighbours in my house, here the neighbours are just there.
    When we moved from WestGermany to EastGermany, we expected to run into problems with neighbours. But there were none. We have great neighbours. Their children love to stay with us, they give us eggs, milk or vegetables from the garden, I advise them with some computer support or writing official letters for them.

    The principle is easy:
    Be open. Don’t be arrogant. Don’t behave as if you knew everything better.
    Respect your neighbours. And they will respect you.
