Onward Assignments

Spring and early summer is a busy transition time for people at post. We’ll be headed out at the end of July and we’ve had several good friends depart with a good number more in the the next couple of months. Here is where other friends are headed. Some of these are with the Embassy and others are with US AID.

  • Windhoek, Namibia
  • Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic
  • Lilongwe, Malawi
  • Washington, D.C.
  • Tegucigalpa, Honduras
  • Kiev, Ukraine
  • Lusaka, Zambia
  • Harare, Zimbabwe
  • Brussels, Belgium
  • Frankfurt, Germany
  • Dubai, United Arab Emirates
  • Baghdad, Iraq


It’s been pretty slow on the blogging front lately and I am really starting to lag on posting updates. Things have been pretty quiet as we will be packing out in a couple of months and have generally been sticking around the city. One of the items on our final list was to make it back out to IRTRA and the Xocomil water park, which we did this past Memorial Day weekend.

We had such a great time on our first visit and this could very well be our last get-a-way before we leave. This time around we found out about asking for a friend of IRTRA discount which meant we were able to get a suite for the same price as the one room on our first visit, which was much easier to manage since we only had DiploTot then. This go around we had DiploBoy and we also brought along Dulce for the extra help. We traveled out with some other friends from the embassy who live in our same neighborhood and had a great time.
