I am South African, and I am now living in Libya. I am currently in Tripoli.
Hi There! I am a 55 year old female. I lived in Tripoli and worked as an English Language Instructor until the end of February 2011, when my government evacuated me 10 days after the revolution started. I was in Libya for 16 months, and loved every minute of my experience, making many local (Libyan) friends in the process! I went on a humanitarian mission into Benghazi in June 2011, and that was an incredible privilege and experience, too. I then worked for a year in Penang, Malaysia, as head of the English Programme at a language centre. I am now back in Tripoli, working as manager of the English department of a local Primary School, and plan to open a new language centre on the same premises soon. I would love to help new/potential ex-pats settle in/find out more about living in Tripoli/Libya, or advise anyone planning to visit the country on business or on holiday, for best places to go.
I can speak English, Afrikaans, German, French, Libyan Arabic (a little), ASL (a little)
My birthday is on 4 September, I was born in 1957
