Kristina & Alastair.

My name is Kristina and I started this blog as way to update my family and friends about life in Sierra Leone.  I moved  from the North Shore of Massachusetts to Sierra Leone in June, 2011 to live and work alongside my pair, Alastair.  Alastair is from the U.K. and we met doing volunteer work in Nicaragua in the summer of 2003.

Alastair has been working as a geologist in Sierra Leone for the better part of the last 6 years, with short periods in Mali and Guinea.  He is the head geologist and project manager for his company which is exploring for gold.  After many years apart, and innumerable miles flown back and forth from England to the States for visits, I have moved to Sierra Leone to share in the experiences of life out here with him.

This blog is my chance to illuminate the daily happenings of life in our camp and in the bush of Sierra Leone and share my thoughts.  As an expatriate, it often feels as if I’m on the outside looking in.  I love to observe but it is certainly difficult to blend.

I hope that my posts offer a glimpse into this unique place that seems a world away, but also how a girl and her pair live and enjoy it :)

  1. Some lovely pictures of your travels and a really interesting blog. I hope that you are coping with all those visitors. It must be very tiring getting to know new people all the time and then having to say goodbye. I hope that Apple is behaving herself. Love Sue.
