I did about ten years of working abroad after I graduated from architecture school. I’ve never ever regretted doing that. My first year of living abroad taught me more about life than the previous 25 years. I wish that they would make it mandatory for all graduates to live abroad for at least two years. And hopefully go somewhere where they will not just hang out with more people like themselves but will make the effort to learn about a different culture, maybe even speak a different language! I think we wouldn’t have nearly as many social problems if we all had the opportunity to live in someone else’s country for a while.
