Hello We may be relocating to Luanda for my husbands work..we have lived in South Africa, USA and currently Paris.... I have to admit that I have moments of complete doubt about moving to Luanda... Especially since WE are making this choice for our family with two young (6 and 8) children..please excuse me but i need some peace of mind....please will you be so kind as to answer my tons :-0 of questions? 1. Are there safety issues outside of the compounds? 2. I understand the medical is not very good..what is the procedure for instance when surgery is needed or there's been a serious accident? Fly to South Africa? 3. How bored do us wives get? 4. Do the kids understand the living arrangements in terms of living behind a compound wall? 5. Were you all nervous and a little (a lot) anxious at the time of realizing you were going to move to Luanda? 6. Does the international school in Luanda Sud have good academic standards? 7. I understand that food is astronomically expensive....How much does food roughly cost for a family of four per month? 8. What do weekend activities consist of? Do most people leave on weekends to go to for example the beach or is that more of a monthly activity?
Thank you so much for your time...I appreciate it Best Ilse
