But but look at the end of the article for the rest of the list
The other countries in the top 10 are China in third place, followed by Germany, Bahrain, New Zealand, Thailand, Taiwan, India and Hong Kong.

Cause they really needed a lot of people with real masters degrees
To get there early is on time and showing up on time is late

Back in the 1990's I worked for a large tech company that had an affiliate in India. All the UK staff that ended up posted to India loved it and were reluctant to return.

And on a similar note an ex-colleague has recently been in touch. He is now based in China and really likes it. Particularly the people, friendly, considerate and good to work with. He is Indian.

Just adding a little grey to our black and white world. :wink:

Good point - he did say it was difficult being vegetarian. And in Sg he was very much into the Indian way of life. Travel changes people.

Being vegetarian / vegan / or what-ever, is fine with me

But imposing the same on friends is a NOT !!!!

Unfortunately some people insist their way of life is right and start to impose, and that's when things get a bit bad !!!
