    Do not know of anyone actually LIVING in Cotonou, but our VT member janiebaxter has visited there, and is familier with the area.

    Have a look at her Cotonou page:

    Cotonou is actually the largest city in Benin, and houses most of the government, which is kinda misleading as the capital is Porto-Nove. It has a thriving port as well as a busy industrial center. You probably know this already. I have only gone through the city, and understand it is now twice the size from when I was there, at around a million residents. As it has been a while, I really cannot comment on the cost of living there. Sorry, which I could be of more help.....good luck!
