It can be challenging connecting with people located in different parts of the world and in different time zones, but to me and the fine people I’ve been lucky enough and, frankly, honored to speak with it’s more important that we share stories others can relate to.

Giving a personal view into the lives of others who are seeing the world from a different “focal length” or mindset opens doors to better understandings of the differences as well as the commonalities we all share.

Amy Brown is an American expat from Evanston, Illinois and she joined us this episode from Lima, Peru. Hear how Amy met and married a Peruvian military officer and how they are now raising their two wonderful children. Listen to why, for people who have started a family after living abroad for an extended amount of time, returning home may not be a simple choice. Amy brings up some very honest points as to why it would be very difficult for her to move her family to the States because to members of her family “home” has a very different meaning.

=== Attention ===

This episode was recorded at the end of 2018. However, because of connection issues, much of the interview became distorted or scrambled beyond repair so I had to do a deep dive into repairing and salvaging this recording so that I could bring to you this wonderful discussion I had with Amy.
