What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?
Describe how you "dreamed" expat life would be before you moved overseas. Please provide as much detail as possible.
Being a spouse, I am worried about how I can possibly contribute to our family income and stay busy. I could maintain our home...except that it comes with a mama and a gardener. Perhaps we can stop using them after a short period.
I could make products to sell; candles, hanging chairs (wood?). I could brew beer or alcohol. I'd like to garden to produce food for us.
I am doubting all of these things because labor is so cheap...so a job would be the best use of my time...and I can do the other things after work and weekends.
How can I find paying work? Even if it is TIA pay.
What will we want that we didn't bring and can't get for a reasonable price?
