my sister

This is Joy, my sister. 

Joy's a newly-wed who works for a consulting firm.  Joy always wanted to live abroad, so when her husband was offered an opportunity in London, they jumped at the chance.  She finagled a transfer from her job, and writes as a guest blogger about her experiences -- what life is like for an American abroad, and possibly any other thing that pops into her pretty little head. You can read her series here.
