Am I an expatriate still?

The other day I was in a negotiation with some colleagues and business partners from the Netherlands. Part of the topic covered salaries and packages.

The question was posed: Are you an expatriate still?

I said absolutely!

Think about this. Years ago I starting thinking I was local, even the children. Now I say we are expatriates and the kids are hybrids.

    You’re right, we can never be anything but expatriate here. The questions I guess is: where are you ‘local’?
