I'm always interested in staying current with vast collection of Foreign Service blogs, so I make an effort to check out the official State blogroll. After a few clicks here and few scrolls there, I landed on the well-known Life After Jerusalem blog. This blog includes the longest list of Foreign Service blogs I've seen so far. The list just keeps going...and I keep clicking...
What I found:
A blog I'd never seen before- all about life in Kabul as a Cultural Affairs Officer. It has some interesting pictures. Click here.
Another find: A NY Times article about biometric data collection in Afghanistan. If you are an EFM, and have worked in a consular section before capturing fingerprints, you will appreciate this article. Click here.
Wing Tips On The Ground, one of our favorites, includes a packing list and tips (including some great pictures) before heading to Iraq. Click here.
