Have your expectations about a place ever gotten you into trouble? American expat Evan was kind enough to be our first guest on the Expat Rewind show back in 2017. He shared a group email that he wrote to his family and friends back home with us.
However, after that episode, Expat Rewind expanded and I started to interview the guests. But his episode remained the only one without an interview portion. Since we are at the end of the Geopats Podcast rebranding process I thought it made sense to go back and reflect on his reflection, via an interview. So, this episode includes his original recording from 2017 AND at 13:51 our recent interview about his email and his recording. I have not reedited the original episode much because I think the contrast in many aspects of the project are interesting in and of themselves. I hope you enjoy this double reflection of someone who is near and dear to me. Oh, did I mention that Evan is also my dear husband?
