The climate here is pretty good; it's rarely too hot and it never gets chilly. The infrastructure in the city is greatly improving, but it still has a way to go. There are plenty of decent, if pricey, restaurants in the city. Ivoiriens here are pretty warm and friendly, and foreigners aren't really hassled. You can find almost anything in the city, as long as it's something that the French would want to buy, but the prices are going to be higher. American food, restaurants, and products are very much a niche thing here, although that seems to be changing. We've been able to save a decent amount of money, but that's because we don't eat out much. Fruit here is great; when it's in season, you'll have the best pineapples and mangoes you've ever tasted. - Aug 2015
