Bidding on our next post... yes, already.

We have been here for a year, which means it's already time to bid on our next post. We were given a list of about 350 jobs, and we had to pick 10. The rules for us were: they all need to require language, we can't pick more than five in any regional bureau, and the arrival date has to work with our schedule. After lots of research, here are the bids I submitted today, in order of preference:

1. Lome, Togo (1 year Consular, 1 year Political/Economic)
2. Rabat, Morocco (2 years Political)
3. Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso (2 years Consular)
4. Nouakchott, Mauritania (2 years Political)
5. Kiev, Ukraine (1 year Consular, 1 year Political
6. Nouakchott, Mauritania (2 years Consular and Economic)
7. Port Louis, Mauritius (1 year Consular, 1 year Political/Economic)
8. Moscow, Russia (2 years Political)
9. Brussels, Belgium (2 years Science and Technology Reporting)
10. Tbilisi, Georgia (2 years Public Diplomacy)
