The annual Mercer survey of the world’s most expensive city for expatriates has been released.

Ordinarily one would expect the likes of Tokyo, Geneva, New York, London or Moscow to top such lists. However, some severe lateral thinking or staggering guess-work is required if one is to guess the top city of 2010.

Think developing city in a (very) developing country. Think far, far, far outside the box. Think post-war torn, oil-fuelled, development induced white land-cruiser plagued hyperinflationary hole…closer; though the field is still fairly wide.

Luanda…capital of Angola. Anyone have that?

1. Luanda

2. Tokyo

3. Ndjamena (Chad, of course)

4. Moscow

5. Geneva
