Isolation, lack of activities outside of work. - Mar 2022

No, nothing like that. - Aug 2021

No. - Nov 2020

There is no such thing as SAD here in Nairobi. Being just south of the equator, the sun always sets at 6:30pm, and the weather is one of the best parts of being stationed in Nairobi. Otherwise, it's the usual afflictions you see pop up at every post: EFM boredom leading to depression. - Dec 2018

No, not that I'm aware of.

Loneliness and homesickness would be the major challenges, since flights are expensive and long. - Jul 2016
