I'm from New York City, but live in Bangladesh doing economic research. As you might imagine, life in Dhaka can be incredibly stressful. Whenever I have a chance to get out for a few days, I take it! Both because it is rejuvenating and because it is one of the biggest perks to living in this part of the world.
In the US, I've lived in New York, Washington DC, and Minnesota. Outside the US I've lived in Costa Rica, Mexico, and Argentina.
I love to stay active--sports, hiking, climbing, rafting, exploring, dancing--and am sure to use up all the calories I've burned by indulging my true love: FOOD. Any and all, the spicier the better.
