  • Yes when I was in 6th grade my father was transferred to Ft.McMurray, Alberta Canada. It was so much different than here. Now it is a booming metropolis. Then it was a little dusty town.

  • Yup, I'm living in the Maghreb right now. I like it but there are things I miss about the US too. My sister said the same thing when she lived in Italy.

  • Yes, we moved to Brazil several years ago and had to make some big adjustments, esp. the language (Portuguese). I still miss some of my favorite American foods and being able to drive to visit family. However, we try to make the best of where we are and enjoy the good and new things that are available to us in Brazil. It has been an interesting and unforgettable experience and my kids have learned a lot by having grown up in a different country and culture than their own.

  • I lived in France for a year & Germany for two when I was in 4-6th grade. The French were intolerable toward Americans, but the Germans were wonderful!
