  Resolved Question: Visiting
Hello, My husband and I are from the U.S. and plan on spending quite some time in Burundi. I was wondering how visiting women generally dress? I don't want to stand out in a bad way but look respectable. And any tips what so ever anyone can give me on anything is welcome. Also, should I know some french or the local language? Thank you. Actually if I could get some Do s and Don't s, that would be good, if no one knows anything about Burundi in particular, maybe just some advice in general about Africa.
