Knowing what you know now, would you still move to this city?

Depends on the neighborhood, but, yes. - Oct 2019


Yes. - Mar 2019


No. - Feb 2019


Possibly not. I adore it, but the long times spent in traffic make it somewhat socially isolated. The weather is amazing, but the air pollution makes it not-great to run or bike outside. Morale at the embassy is 'eh.' It's harder here to find a good work/life balance. - Jan 2019


Absolutely! It’s a great family post. - Dec 2018


Absolutely, my family will miss Uganda. - Oct 2018


No. - Sep 2018


Absolutely not, nor would I ever recommend it to anyone - Sep 2018


Yes. - Aug 2018


YES. - Jun 2018


Yes, though I did need to get used to it. The roads seem crazy to me, and the poverty overwhelming, but it is very nice living here. - Jun 2018


Yes; it's a great post and treats us well. However, we take advantage of what Uganda has to offer. - Aug 2015


No. I've learned a great deal and don't regret coming here but I wouldn't do it again and I will be very glad when this tour wraps up. - Jun 2014


For sure. - Oct 2013


ABSOLUTELY. This has been a wonderful experience for my family. We are going to be sad to leave. - Mar 2013


Probably. But I still would not stay more than 2 years. - Sep 2009
