Windhoek - Post Report Question and Answers

Morale among expats:

The embassy itself is experiencing some bad tour timing, a massive case of tour fatigue. A good three quarters of the embassy is transferring this summer. You're in Africa, and even if it's not "real Africa" (as you will hear again and again and *again*), there are challenges in terms of when things are done, getting them done correctly, and finding things you are looking for. - May 2013

Good. We have a small community and are spread out with both our offices and residences. There are community events, but if you want to socialize more you need to set things up. - Jan 2013

Mostly high, but most expats aren't legally allowed to work here, so they are a bit frustrated. Morale at the embassy ebbs and flows -- typical of a smaller post. - Jul 2012
