My friend just got an awesome job offer in Abuja, Nigeria and will be moving there at the start of January.
She's trying to figure out what living in Abuja will be like. Do you have any info beyond the State Department's "THIS PLACE IS ULTRA DANGEROUS" advice??
She wants to know what life there will be like. How much is rent for one bedroom? What is there to do? Is there an expat community? How easy is it to travel to nearby countries? Also, she is a vegetarian -- will she be able to maintain that in Nigeria? (she also saw online that there is a sailing club. can she join the sailing club?!). Any other advice would be great too!
Thanks, Metafilter! Your answers will be awesome for her (and also for me, because I totally want to visit her!).
