Here is a new guide by someone that has been there and done that a few times, Henry Velez. Check it out. If you decide you want to order anything, please do it on this site. It’s always good to know a little bit about the area you are moving to, especially if it is overseas to a totally different environment. I believe you will find this guide helpful and very reasonably priced.
