Let's dig a bit in the worker life of the expat.
As all normal people, this species wakes up in the morning while growling because she/he would sleep 10 minutes more. Nevertheless one must wake up. In our particular case there are a few steps the expat follows with regularity:
- grooming and cleaning oneself...as any member of the animal world, every person no matter if expat or not, should do it. Memo to local fauna members: WASH and use deodorants.
- deciding what to put on as layers. During this season the best choice is layered clothing style. The 1- degrees gap between the morning and the noon are not helping too much..Note to myself, use the sunglasses while you can.
- boiling water for the morning coffee. Or 3 in 1 something something...Difficult operation, nevertheless it's successful
- in case of other animal companions, check the food/water/toilet conditions,
That should do it. Then run to catch the shuttle as the expat might have the office outside the city (check the Antalya flight post...tells more about the trip in there). Then, every good member of the herd, has to choose the food. Early comers get to choose Indian...the ones that are in time or late, the remaining menus.
Lunch time might come as a surprise as you don't know what the food provider feels like that day. Salads can be cooked, soups very salty...the joy one has during lunch is not comparable to anything.
Work itself is quite boring, or stressful or annoying. Especially when you have to interact with other species from other countries. Like having German zoo communicating with the North Korean one...if they have one.
Once the day is done, all run free on the fields until the next day..
May you all have an easy week and Peace out!
