Botswana can be a good place to be if the price cannot be converted to US $. And the salary increase like south-Africa. Poverty can dissapear in a day. May God Bless the country/people and rain in the land. People are very nice and respectful.Wow another paradise on earth. And I like how Batswana changed and gave their lives to christ. This alone will make difference.
