This week we catch up with American expat Thomas Callahan--a human rights worker turned corporate law attorney who's been living in Moscow for the last seven years.

She describes what it's like for an American to live in the rainbow nation of post-apartheid South Africa and helps dispel some of the myths surrounding what she now calls home.
