hello america

Fun on the back porch.


Exploring the neighborhood.


Trikes in the driveway.


We’re back! And as you can see, we’re quite happy about it.

At some point I’m sure I’ll have more to say about goodbyes in canada cialis online Benin (preview: awful), long haul travel alone and pregnant with a toddler and dog (preview: also awful), and the house we bought sight unseen by me (preview: not at all awful). But for now, there are playgrounds to be discovered, ice cream shops to be visited, and neighborhood kids to be met. Benin was rewarding, and we’re looking forward to Mexico, but at the moment this is exactly where we want and need to be.

    A friend passed along your blog several weeks ago, and I’ve been reading it with interest since we are considering a life in the foreign service. Your insights and observations are so honest, and your blog is a real window on the experience. Any chance you’d be willing and have the time to correspond with a complete stranger over email? We are trying to make a decision before the call comes, and I am looking for all kinds of perspectives. I think yours would be especially helpful, as we are parents to two little boys, living in DC. I would be the tagalong spouse. If this is something you are open to, I’d really appreciate it. Thank you!

    So glad you guys are comfy and settling into your new home. Hoping you’re able to catch up on some sleep before the new wee one arrives. Come and play with the bushbaby and me at yards park on a sunny afternoon!
