General information on living in Conakry


Hi there everyone

I'm a 35 year old Swiss teacher and will be moving to Conakry in November this year Protected content work and live there for 2 years. From the research I've done and the people I've asked I got so many mixed and contradicting opinions that I feel a little at loss.
Can anyone tell me a little bit what their experience is like (I know it's all individual, but still..)?

What's life like in regards to safety (for women and in general) for example? I heard and read about roadblocks and armed robberies which supposedly happen frequently. What should I do with this information?

Is there an ex-pat community? Where do you meet?


Thanks to everyone for sharing and see you in Conakry!
