  Friendly and polite people

One think I liked about Victoria was that everybody (well, almost) is very, very polite:

- Always say 'hello' and 'thank you' to the bus driver
- Is very common vendors, bus drivers, waitress, shop owners, etc. asks 'how are you'
- if you're going to cross the street but you are still some meters from it, cars will stop (well that doesn't apply in big avenues of course)
- Don't forget to give a tip to the waiter.

People can be so nice and friendly that once I was waiting for the bus when an old lady talked to me and we had a very nice conversation while our buses came. I was lucky we took the same bus because she was a veteran of the World War II so, I learned many interesting things from her.

Victorians are a good example of polite, nice and friendly people, even my sister once told me she was fed up with so much politeness!! hehe
