If you’ve ever searched for Real Post Reports or Real School Reports when planning your relocation overseas, you might be familiar with Tales From a Small Planet. Tales from a Small Planet (www.talesmag.com) was created a while back by a group of U.S. Foreign Service community members who had previously collaborated on the “Spouses’ Underground Newsletter” (SUN). Its candid, and anonymous “real post and school reports” span over 325 cities around the world.
A few months ago, a group supporting Tales put together a book of essays about expats and their food adventures, A Cup of Culture and a Pinch of Crisis: Tales from a Small Planet: The Food. The book was edited by (former AAFSW President and current Literary Editor at Talesmag), (AAFSW volunteer and Talesmag volunteer), (EFM), and (EFM). Contributors include Foreign Service family members, an FSO and other expats not associated with the Foreign Service.
