Expat life in Senegal

I might be moving to Senegal later in the year, currently living in Tanzania so am used to Africa....can you offer advise..

Do most people import 4WD vehicles from Japan? As they do in East Africa? What side of the road do you drive on..

Do you have DSTV? Cable TV from South Africa..

What would you bring if you had the opportunity? Furniture? Electrrical goods? Linen?

Are there second hand clothes markets as in other African countries?

What is the average wage for staff..driver, cooks, housegirls?

Sorry for all the questions, but really can't find much expat info on Senegal, and I want to be prepared.

Thankyou in advance.

new to this forum- have read of your years in Tanzania and months in Senegal - do you have any advice for 2 academics who are looking for housing for a month - mid july - mid august - any areas to avoid? What about mosquito netting - is that necessary?
