Was this post your first expatriate experience? If not, what other cities have you lived in as an expat?

No, I have lived in Mexico and South Korea. This is my second assignment in the FS. My first was Bridgetown, Barbados. - Jun 14, 2016
Not my first tour. I have lived in La Paz, Niamey, Antananarivo, Berlin, and a short tour in Baghdad. I have a pretty good idea about living in third world communities and this is my third Africa tour. - Aug 14, 2015
