My name is Amanda. I am blogging from Dushanbe, Tajikistan, during my 9-month language study abroad program here. Dushanbe means Monday in Persian. Also, I will blog on Mondays. So that’s the witty meaning behind the title.

    I have enjoyed and learned a lot by reading your blog, Amanda. If I can’t travel to places far away, it’s nice to read about them through the eyes of someone else. Thanks for letting me come along.
    Enjoy your stay. Be safe, be healthy and keep blogging away.

    Dear Amanda,

    I read your entire blog in one night and found it most interesting. It is very brave of you to willingly live in such a country. For many years, I daydreamed about traveling to Tajikistan, only to visit, yet never found the courage to actually undertake a voyage to such an alien place. Having said that, I did manage to obtain a degree in Persian literature through an online course; which sadly no longer exists. Anyway, I would be more than happy to offer my assistance and share my knowledge as needed. So, should you have any specialised questions, do feel free to contact me at any time.

    Best regards,
