IToday 've been offered some work there - construction. i know nothing of the place, though i have visited Malawi, Zimb and Zamb on holiday 16 years back, and am just starting to consider. I'll be spending the weekend googling and reading the lonely planet. I'm a Brit, my wife is thai and we have 2 toddlers. We're both well travelled and i've lived as a expat for 18 years, mainly in thailand. Can anybody offer some general comments on the place and answer a few questions of the top of my head.
Do they have football on TV (seriously – can’t live without it) – Premiership? Is it a dangerous place in the way of say Nigeria? Is it cheap like BKK or expensive? Many expats there or is it really off-the-beaten-track? What’s D-E-S like – big, many people, much to do, anything to do? Best hotels in D-E-S? Unfortunately I don’t know any one who’s been there to ask these mundane questions.
