One piece of advice I also choose to follow is "never lose more than you can afford to."
Sorry for not answering your request here earlier ST, having been busy and what with having to deal with a few bar flies on here, etc.
I notice your above comment, and although I may be wrong, I think this refers to a post I made some time ago on here with regards a certain lady I once met, so therefore I shall repeat it to the best of my knowledge.
Some years ago now, I was sitting reading a newspaper in the Luxor Hotel gardens, out of the blue, a lady approached me and said, "You are the man with the white pannama hat, a friend told me you could advice me",she then sat down.
She then went on to inform that, like you, she is not stupid, infact a retired solicitor's secretary, quite wealthy and very smartly dressed. I was told that she had only a few years to live, had met an Egyptian man much younger than herself, but feared that maybe he only wanted her for her money.
My advice. - When on the day you arrive to live here, remember the happiness you have in your heart, and if or when a time comes when you feel that happiness is no more, then it is time to get back on that plane, and as you fly over Luxor, you can still smile knowing you have enjoyed your time there, with the full knowledge that you have only lost the money you can afford, and nothing else, then say,.........Good- bye to Luxor.
She then smiled, thanked me and left, I never saw the lady again.
This is the only time any one has asked me for such advice, and it is the same advice I would give to you.
What ever you decide, I wish you well.
