Lagos - Post Report Question and Answers

I tend to stay in the expat bubble, but have colleagues that have mixed very effectively with locals. - Aug 2020

Others find it harder as they live in an expat bubble where their only interactions with local staff are colleagues at the Consulate. - Jul 2020
