New to Bobo Dioulasso (Ouagadougou)

Hello!

My husband and I are coming with our son (5yrs old) to Bobo Dioulasso in April for 3 years.

Are there any other ex-pats living there?

Do any of you have children at the French school there?

My son has attended 1 year of school in Scotland, but doesn't speak French yet, so I intend to homeschool him to begin with- perhaps until September- or maybe next year, so he can learn French.

My partner will work at CIRDES (as a bioinformatician)- and I will work at home initially- (I am a medical herbalist)

We are considering a French Speaking person to help home-school or with childcare some days.

We'd love to hear from anyone with advice on re-locating with kids, and just general advice for adapting to Burkina life, and meeting people!

Thanks,
Claire
