What is your housing like? What are typical housing sizes, locations, and commute times for expatriates?

The housing is spartan. - Nov 2013


Housing is mostly great, however the plumbing is poor and the electricity is awful. There are normally 12-36 light switches in each room -- with terrible wiring.
