What is life like as an expat in your area?

Answer this Question

When we asked people living abroad what life is like in their areas and how people spend their time, they said...

"Family is easily the main focus, with work a distant second for all except the richest and poorest (which make up about half of the city and are busy but nearly unemployed). Socializing is pretty limited except the most informal family visits because there are so few evening activities and it seems pretty dangerous after 11 pm. For expats, dinner out is very common because it's pretty tasty and very cheap," explained one expat living in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan.
