I moved to Lusaka, Zambia, in August 2009 after having lived in Paris, France, for 20 years. I needed a change. I think a lot of us "International Nomads" feel a need to move on every now and then. Even Paris can get old after 20 years. I left my job as a local hire at the American Embassy, joined the State Department, and was sent to Lusaka on my "first" assignment. So far so good."

After graduating in 1986, I tried to live in the U.S. but had to leave after less than one year. Although I am American, I had never lived in the U.S. and found it difficult to adapt. I moved to Geneva, Switzerland, and then to Paris, France, where I have lived for the last 18 years.

The three years I spent in New Delhi were some of the best years of my life. Please feel free to contact me, I'd love to hear from you. Namaste.
