Dushanbe - Post Report Question and Answers

Morale among expats:

It depends on who you talk to. Some expats feel the morale is good; others will say poor. It all depends on whether or not you find good friends and things to do. You have to be a self-starter to like Dushanbe. - Jan 2012

Great! Most people chose to come here and are really into exploring Central Asia. Language ability seems to impact this a lot. Tajikistan drives everyone crazy at some point, so it helps to maintain perspective (and get out every few months). - Jun 2009

Hard to say. This last winter was rough, with electricity rationing and real food supply problems, and I would say that's brought it down. Many people (Tajiks and expats) are dreading this winter, and going somewhere else if they can. - Jul 2008
