I'm a midwestern gal who grew up in Southern Illinois and found herself transplanted into the great beyond. I spent 12 years on the East Coast in the Boston/Providence area developing my persona and my taste for oysters and expensive clothes. Not to mention my love of all things international, including my weird and wonderful Dutch fella who is the catalyst behind my trek into the unknown. After spending some time in Amsterdam, it was decided we would move to Suriname for a year so he can continue his developing career in medicine and I can continue my developing career as a flâneuse. Let's see what happens!!!
