Hi I'm an English female and moving to Gabarone for a short while and would really appreciate some advise. Here are some of my questions: 1) Can anyone advise on cost of living - mainly eating out, food, taxis etc. 2)Also safety walking around day/night. Is it ok? Are there areas to avoid 3)Social life, entertainment, making new friends 4)Church - I would like to find a Christian church while I am over 5)Shopping - I have no idea if I can buy the things I can get back home - are these widely available English books, sun tan lotion, and what price are they? 6) any other tips welcome
