107 – GreenFeet Guides with Ambika
Today on the show we have Ambika Anand Prokop, author of GreenFeet Guides. Her and her family are in Foreign Service meaning they get “stationed” in a foreign country for 2-3 years at a time, her husband working as a diplomat while they get to live like the locals and enjoy their new home.
They spent thief first 2 years in India. Ambika talks about what a crazy drastic culture shock that was when coming from the California in the US. They next moved onto Singapore. Even though it’s pretty close distance wise to India, just like the rest of southeast Asia, it couldn’t be more different! Singapore is extremely developed little island of only 275 square miles. And has a very unique blend of culture and developed economy.
She shares lots of great stories about some of their experiences in sightseeing and touring around (including riding an elephant during bath time!!) as well as the ups and downs of learning to live like locals in a brand new foreign country (setting up a new home, shopping, etc) Make sure to listen to the full episode to learn more about her Cambodia – GreenFeet Guide she created to help kids get the most out of the country your family travels to!!
