What is the relative size of the expatriate community? How would you describe overall morale among expatriates?
Very large (see number of international schools). Lots of people through Embassies, Exxon, a large missionary population, and many other businesses like IBM or PWC. Morale is good. People like it here (except when there is a hiring freeze because working on the economy is super hard). - Dec 12, 2017

Large--there are many NGOs and corporations with regional headquarters here. - Apr 28, 2010
Not as big as we would have expected. You can find them at some real expat hangouts, though, which can be fun: Iguana's tex-mex restaurant and Treehugger Dan's bookstore. - Feb 24, 2008
