So many nice people and experiences recently...

My car wouldn't start at the gas station the other day and several guys came over to help. One Puerto Ricano even put his battery in my car to get it started and another went with me into the station to help pick out the right battery.

Gotta love that about living here.

Nice to see there is still good hearted people in this world that know how to act "human". (tu)

Went to a little grocery store yesterday --- when I came out the parking area was full, and because people were getting home from work the traffic on the road was moving along at a quick pace.

A local man was sitting nearby and saw my dilema... came right over and said something like 'I'll lead you out" (I have a real hard time understanding the dialect)
Anyways, that's exactly what he did... he directed traffic so that I got out, safely, and I was very grateful.
I would've shouted out a big "God Bless You" - but he had already left....

I love things like that. They happen often here. I will be stateside for a month this summer and I will count how many times someone let's me out of a parking area, let alone 'leads me out' ...

I saw an old lady fall in the street the other day, and by the time I pulled my jeep over to the side of the road, with the intention of jumping out to help her, three other people had already run across the street to help her up.

Sometimes when I see tourists in Csted that look lost I pull over and ask if I can help. They are usually greatful, but are oftentimes also suspicious of my motives...cracks me up!!

The first time we were there, in C-sted we were looking for something and a lady went out of her way and asked us if we were lost and told us where we would find what we were looking for

The first time we were there with a car, we were lost and a guy pulls over to ask if he could help as we looked lost.

Back in Oct, we had a flat on the North shore road. I was starting to fix it and five cars went by, three stopped to ask if we needed help. The last one, a Rasta man would not take no for a answer and practically did the whole job. If that was here in AZ, I would still be sitting there.

Three reasons we love it there!
