I am an Expat

Expat Blog
I take it as a matter of great pride that my blog happened to be right next to Mr. Pecora Nera‘s Blog of the Month! It’s a sign, folks! It’s a sign!

Yes, it’s the simple things!

So this just happened and I know, I know, it isn’t such a big deal. But from being viewed as an immigrant (and all of its unfair connotations) to actually being called an Expat – the joy is understated. And the fact that I didn’t have to go through the drastic/traumatic process of changing my skin colour – YAY! Take that racism! 😀

  1. You have joined the ranks that include Hemingway, Rushdie, Gertrude Stein, Pound, Joyce, and others. You are in excellent company. It is no surprise.

            I am definitely an immigrant 🙂 I doubt I will rise to the lofty heights of Expat and how did you manage to survive for a year on $1000??? I need to suggest to Mrs S that we swap countries

              I didn’t really live the luxury life of wine and cereal. Had to budget one tomato across 4 days. I wouldn’t do it again. Also, if the EXPAT blog says you’re an expat, that’s it! You are!
