Blog: I never go to the Foreigners’ Police without doing a solid prayer

Mazvi from Zimbabwe considers Slovakia her second home now.

Today I bring another continent into the picture with Mazvi Serina Musariri from Zimbabwe.

Mazvi first came to Slovakia to work for the British Chamber of Commerce in 2010. She studied in South Africa and landed in Slovakia because of a job opportunity and also to see something else about the world.

I was happy to learn that she considers Slovakia her second home now. She enjoys the experience, her job and connection. But there is also something missing: a particular vibe, some of the tastes, something of the people.

Unsurprisingly, Slovakia doesn’t match her home country.

My Slovak Experience is a podcast by Emanuele Terenzani. In each episode, he interviews one of his fellow foreigners living in Slovakia. You can follow the podcast on YouTube, iTunes, Stitcher or Tunein.
