Chris Gerakiteys is an Australian writer, blogger, scientific editor and general jill-of-all trades.
In 2012, exhausted by the fly in-fly-out lifestyle of her geologist husband, the family decided to take the plunge and move to Ghana, West Africa.
She writes about the challenges, experiences and joys of living six degrees north of the equator, amidst the colour, chaos and smells of West Africa. Six Degrees North is part travelogue, part diary; Chris speaks honestly about raising children and living as an expat in the developing world.
She splits her time between Accra, the capital of this peaceful African nation, and rural Ghana where her husband works.
