I will miss the efficiency and safety of Singapore, as well as the abundant (and cheap!) hawker centers. Traci in Singapore, Career Diplomat
I still have a year to go in Kampala, but I will miss the amazingly fresh, cheap, and tasty fruits (pineapples, mangoes, bananas, oh my!) and the lush green that is everywhere here. Sadie in Kampala, Uganda. Sadie Abroad
After a year here, and three more to go, I’d say… the weather and the beauty of the country. Michele in Amman, Jordan. Globe Hoppers
The food! I always miss the food, no matter where I am. Donna in Amman, Jordan, Email from the Embassy
When we leave Ethiopia, I will miss the phenomenal coffee dearly as well as the Ethiopian food. But I’ll likely miss the endless slow-paced family friendly lifestyle. Sara in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, Our Yuppie Life.
I am going to miss the “normalcy” of life in NZ. After 11 years of posts in the developing world, this was a much needed break (without going to DC which I would hate). I will miss the relative safety of this place, stuck in time somewhere between 1975 and 1989, with ridiculously low crime, no poisonous creepy crawlers, and no animals wanting to stalk and eat me. I will miss being able to take care of my needs, in English, without the help of the embassy. I will miss the ever changing appearance of the harbor as I make my way into “town” as they say here. I will miss how much my girls love it here and how I don’t have to worry about them when they go out with their friends (except for the ever present thought about how to reach them in the event of earthquakes). I will miss us all being together, in one city, as this is the last time Ally will join us at a posting, aside from Christmas and summer breaks from university. And I will miss the friends I was determined not to make during the last transfer session. Brandy in Wellington, New Zealand. Observations of an Okie
