Slower-pace of life in Gaborone, Botswana

Married for 15 years, avid travelers Eyassu and Shontaye Abegaz always dreamed of living in another country. Though Eyassu was born in Ethiopia, he moved to the States for high school and has been living in the U.S. ever since. Growing tired of their hectic pace in Washington, DC the couple took a trip to Botswana and absolutely fell in love with the country: the culture, the people and the landscape. After Eyassu was offered a teaching job at a university in Gaborone, the couple had their chance to see their dream of living abroad come true. Luckily, Shontaye's job as a travel writer allows her to work anywhere. For Eyassu and Shontaye, Gaborone offers a little adventure and a much slower pace of life. But as the capital city of Botswana, it also has the hustle and bustle of one of Africa's fastest-growing cities and a booming housing market. Testing the waters before committing to purchasing a home, Eyassu and Shontaye have decided to start off renting and are counting on agent Kim Bekker to find them a nice rental encompassing their wish list of 3 to 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a pool within their budget of 1800 U.S. dollars a month.
