More expensive then other Middle Eastern countries? I would say that the in-accessibility is the bigger turn-off... Still I thought more Europeans would come given that political situations in places like Uzbekistan are as precarious as here yet people still go and play those tournaments.

The capital of the tiny Republic of Djibouti, situated in the horn of Africa, is the Arab world’s most expensive city for expatriates, a survey by global consultant Mercer has revealed.

Djibouti city, where both Arabic and French are spoken and recognized official languages, beats expensive cities like Beirut, Dubai, and Abu Dhabi.

How? I mean the GDP per Capita is around $1000 and if it is that expensive surely they would have more income coming in...

OMG Kateryna made a Spanish Clay-Court QF but couldn't make one here

Also, Meelis, I was just reading the article you put forth, and Mercer has previously put Luanda in Angola and N'Djamena in Chad as some of the most expensive cities for expatriates... I think that's too much of a stretch...

This is quite understandable actually. Angola and to a lesser extent Chad are major oil producers in Africa, and their economies are dominated by the expat-heavy petroleum industry. Given that a lot of the daily necessities for EXPATS must be imported, their living costs simply soar. Expenditure for the locals should be different, though.

"While natives to a particular country can rely on local knowledge to keep their own living costs down, expatriates – especially with a taste for comforts from back home – are finding that certain African cities are among the most expensive places in the world to rent accommodation or even to buy a pair of jeans"

surely sizikova and lazareva are already native in djibouti and other african countries, so it's not a problem for them
