My Expat Life: from Buenos Aires to Bali

One French, one British, six Americans. Paris, Buenos Aires, Djibouti, Bali, Madrid, London, Shanghai. Two aspects; the good & the bad. One life; the expat life.

The good: Life is so rich. Living in a city that is bursting at the seams with people, art, culture, noise and passion is exhilarating. Argentina is a complex country, from its history, current political and economic climate, to the psychology of its residents. It's never boring, not even for a minute.

The bad: It is never boring - it is very intense. The hyperinflation is a challenge. It's noisy, it can be hard to find peace. Many people struggle to survive, let alone thrive. And it is very, very far from home. There has to be a price to be paid for so much fun.
