I am starting to adjust to life in Attiekeland, but the thing I really miss is shopping. No kind of shopping is immune. I miss farmer's markets, Craigslist, and online shopping. I know I am being shallow, but I refuse to apologize for my lack of depth!
Facebook has realized that I both miss shopping and now live in Attiekeland and decided to come to the rescue with an ad for Jumia!
I was skeptical at first but after doing a bit of research, it looks like www.jumia.ci is legit. The platform exists in a number of African countries and is owned by Rocket Internet, a German e-commerce giant that owns Zalando. The Ivorian office is even hiring (http://www.jumia.ci/carrieres/).
I haven't ordered anything yet, but I saw decent prices for refrigerators, and other appliances. I am not 100% sure how it works yet, but I'll let you guys know as soon as I find out...
