A wide range of people are viewed as Indians, and another wide range are viewed as Chinese.As an expatriate life may be more expensive than the average citizen. for example you may want to send your children to a British-Indian School or do your shopping at the supermarket rather than the local market or visit the most exclusive  hospitals.
    cost of living is not standard in nigeria, especially lagos because there is room for a wide range of incomes. There are at least two prices for everything in two different places; only difference is one for the rich and one for the poor.
