    Welcome. Sounds like you can give us tips, rather than the other way around.

    Hit Zim in the sweet spot from '94 to '98 when the economy suddenly normalized and Forex became available. Ghana is a different part of Africa to what we're used to. Extreme climate being above the equator and very different culture. A lot of Ghanians are widely travelled and highly educated mostly in UK Europe and USA. Zambia was the best! Worked up on the Copperbelt in Chingola and lived some 60kms away in Kitwe. Spent many happy hours Tiger fishing on the Zambezi and also Kariba. Also spent some time in the DRC being involved in mining. A lot different too especially with the language barrier!

    I haven't been to Zim but I've worked as an Expat in Zambia for a short time and Ghana for 18 months. Both were really cool, super friendly people in general.

    Welcome here.

    I never personally worked on the copper belt side but I've picked my dad up the airport once or twice when he was coming back. I understand more now
