    I love having been in your country

    I love having been in your country.


    I can't understand the meaning of this sentence.

    Could anyone explain it?

    Can you write what you can't understand? And what do you understand? Give your ideas. I think it's not difficult to understand it. Just try.

    Thank you -- Harry Smith

    Here is my try :

    A = China
    B = England

    A now met B in England

    A to B = I love being in your country.

    But I don't know, when should I say (I love having been in your country)

    It is complete new tense for me. I never come across such a sentence (having been).
    Could you now help me?

    When you have already left that country and write a letter or just call someone to thank him for the invitation you say: I love having been in your country.
