Taking off…without me?

There’s a buzz about being back in Abidjan. I know if I lived here, the pace would appear slow, but it seems things are moving in the right direction, and that this is turning into an exciting place to be. I don’t regret leaving to pick up new experiences and skills, but I’m starting to worry that being away for too long will leave me forgotten and no longer a part of the scene. I feel more strongly than ever that the group of young web enthusiasts and creatives here will be doing some incredible things over the next few years. The dilemma of whether or not to return is I imagine a position the Ivorian diaspora finds itself in as well. I wouldn’t refuse a good job back in Abidjan, though I still think it’s good for my personal development to be elsewhere for a few more years. But even from far away, I need to stay attached.
