What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?
Name three things that you wish you had brought and three you wish you had left at home.
I could have brought more cotton bed sheets, more home food and an extra pair of sports shoes. I would have left at home my bicycle (roads are very dangerous)...

What advice would you give someone preparing to move to your area about the actual move, choosing a neighborhood and finding a home?
Get advice from expats who are living in the country. Some houses are in remote places far from a school, from a supermarket. Check the services provided by the compund (a good maintenance service is important).
What type of housing do you live in? Is this typical for most expats in your area?
We are living in a California-style house. It is typical for most expats with kids. There are beautiful condominiums too along the beach.
How did you choose your neighborhood and find your home or apartment?
We chose our first home through a real estate company. The location was great (yacht club) but the neighborhood with no neighbors. We chose our second home because many people are living there with children and it is located on a golf course.
Are your housing costs higher or lower than they were in your home country? What is the average cost of housing there?
The housing costs are similar (for a 4 bedrooms house, 3000$).
