I am from Sweden originally, and I am coming to Cotonou this fall to work with economic development. I have never worked in Sub-Saharan Africa before, so I am both excited and a bit intimidated. Though most of the stuff I read show that Benin is a relatively safe country; though the proximity to Lagos is a bit daunting.
I would love to meet some other expats ahead of time. I have a bunch of questions - everything from housing over social life to politics.
