Expats who work longterm

Hi Chuks,

It's always been my opinion that expats who work for a long time in Nigeria are similar to long time prison inmates. They both seem to become institutionalized and have to readjust to living in an open society. Many inmates prefer to stay in a society they understand and know how to function well in. The wonderful thing about the human brain is that it forgets exactly what a particular pain feels like. Over time only the more pleasant memories remain. Thank Buddha!

Cheers,
