The American Election

Our team attended a talk on the American presidential election by political science professor Eric Uslaner of the University of Maryland. The lecture series, sponsored by the US State Department, drew a mix of expats and locals. In fact, Maldivians are often more willing to discuss the American election than their own election!
I also had the opportunity to meet Kathleen Fox, the new press and cultural affairs officer based in the nearest US Embassy in Colombo, Sri Lanka.
