Garden Route In South Africa, where one can purchase a house worth $5 million
dollars for $800,000 - It's a secret place where unmatched luxury
exists in one of the world's most spectacular settings. Feathered in two
EscapeArtist Special Reports the area will be
a revelation to many. Few Americans have heard of the Garden Route,
those that have are keeping it to themselves. That such a wonderful
way of life had been kept secret for so long is probably due to the fact
that Americans only recently began moving overseas. Europeans know
about the Garden Route and there has been an increasing number of Europeans
moving there. Lately Americans have begun moving there. These Special
Reports will certainly persuade others to do so. The place is breath-takingly
beautiful. Moving to Panama or Belize is better than being in the USA;
moving to Knysna, as shown in the images in these reports, would seem to
be a better move than moving to almost anywhere on earth. Strong
words? Well, take a look — there is no question that it is indeed a splendid
place - perhaps the right place at the right time! - Where

are updating our Live In Africa pages by Nation. We began
with South Africa as we have the greatest number resources on South Africa.
We also agree with Doug Casey who said, "I've come to the conclusion that
property in South Africa is now among the best bargains in the world, in
both absolute and relative terms." On a recent trip to South Africa he
said, "I stuck to Jo'berg and the Cape; it's a big country and I simply
put myself in the hands of my fairly numerous South African relatives.
I can't make any recommendations on Jo'burg property because although it's
cheap, I can't see the opportunity, and have no personal interest in it.
That's not to say parts of Jo'berg aren't quite nice; the northern suburbs
(Rosebank, Sandton, Illovo, Saxonwold, etc.) are thoroughly white; you
wouldn't know these areas from any upmarket enclave in Europe or North
America to judge by the people in the stores and cafes. It's just that
the whites are a privileged enclave in a sea of much poorer people, most
of them young, many with chips on their shoulders, from a different race.
And that reduces its appeal considerably. The Cape has very different dynamics."
This not say
that there aren't many interesting places in Africa; Cape Verde, Mauritius,
Madagascar, Tunisia and so on. We'll add what we can, list what we
can, and update as fast as we can.

Continues to Drive Expat Employment in South Africa
- Despite the recent worldwide economic slowdown, globalisation is stimulating
the growth of expatriate employment internationally with South African
companies also getting in on the act as they seek to grow their footprints
in the rest of Africa and further afield. While multinationals keen on
expanding in Africa are increasingly deploying their staff to the continent
to build local operations, South African companies - particularly in banking,
retail, construction and telecommunications - are sending their staff to
various destinations to grow their international operations. "Expatriates
are not a dying breed, they are still very much a part of the business
strategies of many companies seeking to expand their activities beyond
their home bases," says Siobhan Cummins, managing director Europe Middle
East and Africa of ORC Worldwide, a leading world consultant in expatriate
pay and working conditions, which has a working association with Johannesburg-based
management consulting firm, P-E Corporate Services.
to Cape Town, South Africa - Moving To One Of The World's Most Beautiful
Cities - Over the past few years, more and
more small businesses from particularly the States and Europe have relocated
their operational base to South Africa. Cape Town in particular has
abundance of highly skilled and educated personnel, who are currently unemployed
or in part-time or contract employment. It is this highly skilled
and available workforce which favours the decision to relocate an operational
base to Cape Town. Savings of between 30-50% on operational and employment
costs is the major reason for such decision to relocate. Living in
South Africa at a fraction of the cost of living in the States, whilst
maintaining the highest of living standards, comparative to that of most
major cities in the world, makes for a favourable argument in support of
moving to South Africa.
Fascinating Coral Reef In Toliara, Madagascar
- One of the most frequently visited provinces in Madagascar is Toliara.
From Antananarivo the RN7 will lead you to Toliara. Taking the road, you
will reach the province of Fianarantsoa (408 km from Antananarivo) before
arriving in Isalo (206 km from Fianarantsoa.) Situated in the southwestern
corner of Madagascar, the lsalo range raises its rocky heads. Isalo National
Park, which is a spectacular site, noiseless and full of mysteries, was
created in 1962 and covers 81,540 hectares; it rocks. After Isalo you can
take a look at Ifaty, another interesting place in the province of Toliara
where you can stay in a small hotel from which you can arrange fishing
and diving trips.
Ghana Getaway - Ghana hardly tops most people’s
list of ideal holiday destinations. It’s a stew pot for every disease
going; vaccinations for yellow fever, tetanus, diptheria, polio, typhoid,
Hepatitus A and B and rabies are a must – not to mention taking your malarial
tablets. Every time you eat out, you’re playing Russian Roulette with your
digestive health and every car journey is a dice with death. Moreover,
being almost equatorial, it’s hot and humid all year round – the only variations
being in January, when the Harmattan wind blows Saharan dust overhead,
and in July and August, when it rains everyday. Petty crime is probably
less common than it is in New York or London but armed carjackings and
robberies are something all visitors need to be aware of.
Abeba, Ethiopia A City Of Great Color - We
stopped for dinner in Ziway, a small town on a lake by the same name. There,
an old man brews his own alcohol. We were told that people come from all
around to visit this man, whose alcohol has medicinal purposes - diabetes,
high blood pressure, digestion problems, arthritis, etc. I tried a little
sip and couldn’t drink anymore, but our professor and driver threw back
half a bottle of the stuff. The man’s wife cooked us dinner - fresh homemade
shiro, a dish made from peas, with lamb and fish straight from the lake.
By the time we left, it was starting to get dark, but we were only 20 minutes
from Lake Langano so we drove anyways. When it gets dark in the Ethiopian
countryside, it gets dark. There are no street lights, only the moon if
it is the right timing and weather. It was nearly impossible to see other
vehicles on the road, let alone cows and people. But we made it safely,
with our little Corolla bottoming out a few times here and there. We were
practically the only people at the Wabe Shebella resort; there was one
other family camping. We checked into our room and then had a campfire.
The acacia wood has an amazing fragrance, and the occasional eucalyptus
leaf that we threw in the fire only added to the aroma. We had some beers
around the fire and listened to the bullfrogs. We heard hyenas too, but
the most dangerous thing around was the mosquitoes. Thank goodness for
Malarone and Deep Woods Off.

“The United 'Bankrupt' States of America” By Harry S. Dent, Jr.-
Niall Ferguson, author of The Ascent of Money: A Financial History of the
World, has been commenting lately that the U.S. government should be hearing
alarm bells, given the rising debt and stimulus programs. In contrast,
mainstream economists like Paul Krugman have been saying that if the U.S.
doesn’t stimulate more quickly and aggressively, it will fall into another
depression or deeper downturn. - From

Dimensions of Living and Working in Malaysia - Its difficult for
an American to understand the Asian concept of Face because we have no
equivalent in our culture. The reason why a clear understanding of FACE
is vital for American business people is because we don’t really have an
equivalent concept, so it is difficult for us to understand what face even
is, much less how to influence our Asian friends, neighbors and associates
in positive ways using our knowledge of FACE.

With considerable investments made in infrastructure and education, Oman
will continue to prosper on account of its natural resources and diversified
