Yes, it’s in the “English Language” part of Canada, but it’s still a French designated post.
If I can believe the job description, I’ll mostly be doing American Citizen Services, the part of consular work I didn’t do much of in Cotonou.
Why take another Consular job?
I wanted to be closer to home this time around. It needed to be a French designated post. And the timing had to work out. What’s that mean? Briefly…I leave from Cotonou a certain month, they need me at the new post a certain month. I need a certain amount of time for training and home leave, and it all has to fit. Ottawa fit.
I wonder how much I get to dip into my storage for warm clothes? I don’t know how clearly the boxes are labeled. Note for those who haven’t packed out before – take the time to label all boxes and inventory them clearly. I didn’t.
And there’s curling.
