Hi! My name is Kathryn and I live in Dhaka, Bangladesh with my husband, Nate, and our son, M. Nate is a Foreign Service Officer in the U.S. State Department. We met while we were serving as Peace Corps Volunteers in Moldova. In May 2015 we packed up our worldly belongings, including our lovable bossy dog Athena (who we adopted in 2010), and moved to Dhaka. Our next post is Muscat, Oman and we will move there in the summer of 2017.
I created this blog to keep our family and friends posted on our adventures in Dhaka, and as a personal journal-of-sorts to document our lives during this time. I also hope that According to Athena is a helpful and humorous resource for those joining/thinking about joining the Foreign Service, especially those with dogs!
