Xpat Community Ezine / Thursday 12 March 2015
Dear Member,  first up this week is a great new exclusive XpatLoop Interview

* HMA Jonathan Knott, British Ambassador. What’s been happening at work and at home since your first Xpat Interview?  "The big news is that I’ll be leaving Budapest shortly for another Ambassadorial job...really sad to be leaving earlier than I’d expected." What will be your greatest challenges in the next 6 months? "My immediate challenge is to make sure that I hand the Embassy over to my successor in good shape. Theresa Bubbear will be Charge d’Affaires until my full-time successor arrives." What was the most interesting travel trip you have ever taken? "I visited Pyongyang a while ago for work. It was very interesting – and disturbing." Click for more... 

Now here's hoping you like what's included for you below.
Yours sincerely with kind regards, Stephen@XpatLoop.com
