Beirut - Post Report Question and Answers

Morale among expats:

Good. Although there doesn't seem to be a lot of good friendships between expats and locals, unless they are relatives. - Apr 2012

Poor at the US Embassy because of security rules restricting people to the compound but among others people seem to have a great time in Lebanon. - Sep 2010

Excellent, with occasional frustrations with the difficulty of daily logistics in Beirut. Morale among embassy staff is pretty good, but most people are ready to leave after two years because of the movement restrictions and the relatively heavy workload. Life at the embassy is really what you make of it, and we've been having a great time. - Jul 2010

Generally high. Among embassy personnel: middling to low. - Jun 2009

Pretty low. - Jun 2008

Everyone experiences the same issues here from time to time. But, I believe the moral here is generally positive. - Mar 2008
