"The Stuff Expat Aid Workers Like blog is like having a beer with a jaundiced aid worker after a crap day. It’s all cynicism and self-loathing (and some ferocious cartoons), with the commitment (one hopes) taken for granted...." Duncan Green, Oxfam UK, From Poverty to Power Blog
"I'm a local, and I just wanted to say thank you SO MUCH for your blog. Often when working with expats I get a sense of humour failure. Why do they talk about the toilet so much (especially because Cape Town isn't exactly the bush - you can eat quite safely) and wear such a strange combination of local clothes? Why do they ignore advice about safety? Why do they lecture me on the history of my own country? And then I read your blog. And it's all so true!" H
