Life isn't always glamorous as an expat, but it's not all being stuck in the field wishing for home either. Here's some pics from June - early October (the longest amount of time I've been in the country since I took my current job) when I was working in the office or seconded to UNHCR Nairobi. I traveled with friends, I blogged a few times, I cooked some, but mostly I watched trashy reality shows on E! while writing refugees' persecution histories, explaining why they should be recommended for resettlement. The fact I only have so few to share also tells me I need to be taking more photographic evidence of my life in Nairobi. Here's some I did manage to snap along the way:

So I'm aware that I've been very lame about posting for the last month since I went off secondment and began traveling again. (For the record I did blog a restaurant review on my other blog African Nights so I wasn't a complete slacker.) My first trip post-Nairobi secondment was to Tchad. Yes, that is a real country. It's landlocked between Sudan, Libya, Niger, Nigeria, Cameroon, and Central African Republic. They host refugees from both Sudan and CAR.
