Greetings Sönam,

It was a great game. Both sides played very well, and with integrity.

I'm grateful that our win is good for the mood of this country, and, after the destruction of the earthquakes, Christchurch in particular.

Hm. Given a choice between maintaining Christchurch intact and winning the World Cup, I wonder which one New Zealanders would chose?

I went to three funerals after the February quake so that's an easy question for me...

Bravo to the might All Blacks, and bravo too to le Bleus, for their fine performance!

Best wishes to the rebuilding of Christchurch, and everyone else back in Aotearoa!

I'm presently at Fo Guang University, up in the mountains behind Ilan (actually, Jiaoxi), in the NE of Taiwan.
Please come and pay us a visit if you are in this part of the world!
Or, better still, come and enroll here, and do a BA or MA in Buddhist Studies!
(The BA is taught in Mandarin, the MA is in English but next year will have a Mandarin track, too.)
Scholarships are available!

keeping the ball was there game, at the end. But we missed a penalty (Tren Dhuc) if Para would have still been on the yard he would have transformed it ... but that's not the point, both teams have been of the same strength, and maybe because we have been declared loosed before the game started we had that "freedom of mind" that could have made it better ...
It's ok ... All Blacks is a big piece, and France too!

Much respect! your so fortunate to have the conditions to study there! It's too late for me now :( I've already invested too much in my civil engineering degree and job to attempt art. Always liked art though.
