Bujumbura - Post Report Question and Answers

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

I am well-traveled in the Foreign Service and have spent many tours in Africa before arriving in Bujumbura. This is a beautiful country and the people here are respectful, courteous, and smart. Except where they are behind the wheel of a car and then - like everywhere else I have served - all respect for rules, lives, and common sense goes by the wayside. I have served in Sub-Saharan Africa, Northern Africa, and now twice in Central Africa. Plus a few short tours in war zones. - Mar 2021
