This is a true hardship post. Life here is overwhelmingly, unimaginably difficult for most of its residents. We are in an incredibly privileged position. This is a place where there are rich people and impoverished people, with very few in the middle. I didn't realize how many things and services exist only where there is a large middle class (like shopping malls!) until being here and seeing how much isn't here. - Aug 13, 2015
I do not regret that I come here because the people here are nice and the local employees that I work with are extremely nice and smart. One tour is enough, though. It's a great experience and I am happy I did come here. - Mar 27, 2011
