I have entered the DV lottery, and chatting about the prospect of moving with my wife has left her almost paralysed with fear...so from one South African to a whole lot of them:
1. Do any of you, having moved to the US, wish that you could go back to your life the way it was before you left South Africa?
2. Do you feel completely separated and alienated from family back home?
I realise and have explained that there is a good chance that we won't even win a GC, however I figure that we would be idiots to turn down a chance to get over there should the opportunity present itself. From the tons of reading that I've done it looks like 99% of people are super happy that they made the move.
Eish....why are some people so risk averse?
