gloria: I see..
Ying-Lan: I have been in Vancouver.. but I did not see those problems at that time.
gloria: How are you today?
MichaelC: Last year was a bad year in Australia. A lot of racist sentiments were aired on the media because of a new racist political party. Thankfully, that party has now almost disappeared.
MichaelC: They didn't get much of the vote in the elections and that made me feel better about Australia again.
MichaelC: Gloria - in answer to your question. I'm good today. I'm about to start holidays!
Maggi: Funny, but the Germans have the world looking at them always but they are far less rascist.
Ying-Lan: It is hard to be a good kid if he does not live with his family... it is right?
