I’ve been living in Niamey, Niger for well over a year now and this is the longest I’ve lived in one place since I started grad school back in 2012.
1 year in Rochester, NY. 1 year in Zambia. 1 year in Rochester. 6 months in Antarctica. 6 months in Rochester. And now here.
I still desire to travel and see new sights, but I’m learning adventures can also be had by staying put. The sights may stay the same, but the view certainly does not. This is both in terms of changes to the terrain through development and the course of nature, but also through coming to a deeper understanding and appreciation for the places I interact with on a daily basis.
