Hi everyone, We may be coming to live and work in Asmara for the next 3-4 years. Can anybody tell us what are internet connections availability and speeds like? We will be living in a rented house in the city and would really like to be able to use Skype to keep in touch with family and friends. Any other hints and advice will be welcome also! Thanks John and Ella
Hi to all! I'm from Italy, and my wife can go to asmara to work as teacher in an italian school for some years (at least 4 we think...). She must confirm or deny in a week. I have same questions: - Is a quite place? - What about hospitals? - There are some problems with food or water o something like? - Can I found a work for me? I'm a 42 years old computer programmer with about 24 years experience. However, every work is ok for me... We think to accept, because we think this can be a fantastic experience, but some words from someone who knows the city, the people and the life in asmara is very needed... Thanks in advice Del Mestre Luca
Hey friends !! I am from India, and may be going to Eritrea as a lecturer in the Eritrea Institute of Technology early next year. Since its an absolutely new place for me, I wonder how it would be for an outsider to settle there. It would also be of great help if somebody can throw some light on the cost of living over there. Thanks. Samik.

Hi, I'm going to visit Eritrea in summer. I have a few questions, please help. 1) Is it true that only overland route is via Ethiopia and Djibouti? 2) Is it safe and wise travelling by land from Djibouti border (~Assab) to Asmara? 3) Are there any ferry from Massawa to Jeddah (SA) or somewhere in Yemen (Aden)? In general, I will start in Egypt and I want to visit Sudan and Eritrea (it's a must) and then go back via Saudi Arabia/Syria/Turkey to Europe. Visiting Ethiopia and Djibouti would be nice, but not necessary. Thanks in advance.
