What kind of thing do you want to know?

Not having been there myself im no expert, but my ex-girlfriend was there in 2006. From what she told, it was very, very poor. Most streets werent paved. The government is run by authoritarian islamists. Most people just want peace and stability and dont care too much about politics, but welcomed sharia laws. The government started a development project after the peace agreement with some new hotels and a new airport being built. The city have also seen some foreign investments the last couple of years.

Just out of curiosity. What kind of job is it?
