The bid list. It is here.

There are lots of positions open in Afghanistan. And Iraq. And Sudan.

There are slots at Missions other than these three, of course. At first glance, some are very appealing (eastern Europe). Some are not so appealing (a conflict prone country in the Pacific). There are one-year positions in CPCs, like Afghanistan. All of them make me ask whether the FS life is right for us.

Let the deliberations begin.
