In Russia, where I reside, the honeymoon can end quickly Cyrillic every-where, grey skies, and unfriendly faces aren’t conducive to an expat that is happy. The 2nd period is, of course, the darker side of expat living. There are many whom encounter it more sharply: exactly exactly just what the hell did I have myself into? How come no body ever smile in Russia? I cannot comprehend such a thing they are saying! For other individuals, it is a less pronounced anxiety that still manages to feel oppressive: am we achieving this right? Jesus, every person got to know i am a foreigner. Can I ever perhaps perhaps not feel just like an alien here?
