- Wedding: June 2011
Hey, so I was reading another post and it got me thinking. I don’t think I’ve seen any other Expat threads although there are sometimes references to living abroad.
So here we are! Maybe we can get to know each other a bit.
Where do you live?
Reason why you live there?
Both Darling Husband and I have jobs here. He’s a professor and I’m a development researcher at the moment.
Have you lived any other countries? Where?
I lived in Cairo, Egypt for about 2.5 years. I went to grad school there for International Human Rights & Humanitarian Law, worked with refugees, and met DH!
How long have you been there?
I arrived on 11 Sept 2011. And no- it was a fluke. I left DC on 09 Sept.
How much longer do you plan to be there?
Not sure, it all depends on “Transition” and security. We’ll probably be here until at least June 2013.
How long have you been with your partner?
Together 3.5 years; Married 10 months.
Do you have kids?
Not yet. I have baby rabies pretty badly though. No little people until we leave here though.
Best part about living abroad?
Getting to try new things and meet interesting people. Also, living in Central Asia means I can travel to a lot of places much easier than from the US.
Generally, the worst part of living abroad is missing my family back in the US. Specifically, the worst part about living here is that things sometimes blow up. It’s pretty rare and sort of predictable though.
