IamA public defender who moved halfway around the world to work in one of the tiniest and newest countries on Earth, Palau! AMA!
About two months ago, I packed up a couple of Rubbermaid tubs and left my life as a private attorney in Texas behind to move to the Republic of Palau, a tiny island nation near Micronesia. I had never been away from Texas for more than two weeks. I will be here for the next two years or so.
Life here is very different from what I was used to, but it is also eerily similar considering how far away I am.
I started a blog if you're curious to see pictures of my exploits: www.palallison.wordpress.com
The time zone here is 14 hours ahead of CST, back home, so ask me questions to keep me company!
My Proof: Even put in my library card! Ha! http://i.imgur.com/cESbnh4.jpg
EDIT: Oh my gosh, I had no idea this would get so much attention. I have to go to bed, but this was such a blast! Thanks for keeping me company tonight, Reddit!
