about

This is a welcome and important contribution to the travel literature on Abuja, Nigeria's official capital city. Presenting the city of Abuja in a positive and endearing light, the book provides details on the history, people, cultures, landscape and languages of the city and surrounding area. It provides much information on aspects of practical and social life - dress, food, drink, hotels, restaurants and bars; travel, transport and driving in Abuja. Whole sections are dedicated to the ex-pat experience: from finding from somewhere to live; getting connected, hooked up and down to business; through negotiating public services and bureaucracy; finding suitable schools; staying 'healthy, safe, fit and beautiful'; to hiring 'domestic help', controlling pests ('fumigation') and organising swimming pool maintenance. The co-authors are variously writers, researchers and editors who all have extensive experience of travel and of living in Abuja as foreigners.
