Let's Get Out of This Country

Eleanor Antin - The Golden Death from "The Last Days of Pompeii" (2001)

"We finished this piece two-and-half weeks before 9/11…So the relationships between America as this great colonial power and Rome—one of the early, great colonial powers—were extremely clear to me." — Eleanor Antin

I'm accepting suggestions for places to move. I've been told that Belgium is a paradise complete with beer, chocolate, waffles, and the least stratified financial class system in the world. I've also been told that it is the most boring country in Europe, though the city of Bruges comes highly reccommended, and that the nightlife resonates with hollow techno music. My parents and my heart still want me to land in Ireland... so I can pursue an awkwardly-tall female and a purity of being only found in the relaxed rolling hills within Ireland's piled-stone borders. Several countries in Africa are always on the list, though my lack of language skills would limit interactions beyond an arrogant tourist (and I hate being a tourist). Basically, I need a place with a character and a job opening. If you know of any intriguing countries, organizations, projects, people, or jobs (neuroscience, public health, biology, writing, music, art, etc)... please let me know. Now is the time for inspiration.
