    Mercer's 2009 Worldwide Cost of Living survey has been released now and Tokyo has been named the world's most expensive city. During the economic downturn, Japanese yen rose against the American dollar and other currencies. Tokyo is followed by Osaka, Moscow and Geneva, which were at the top last year. The drastic changes in the exchange rates over the last one year has accounted for the significant changes in the order of the cities in the new list. Hit the jump to see the world's most expensive cities to live.

    Kumbe ni kweli watu wanavyosema kuwa Geneva inafanana na mji wa Lushoto kwa mandhari. Yaani mji umekaa kama bakuli ulivyozungukwa na milima na Lushoto iko vilevile.

    Thanks Maxence for the information with beautiful photos.

    Yeah, sijawahi fika Geneva ila nimewahi kufika Lushoto mara kadhaa yaani nilipoona hiyo picha nikakumbuka watu huwa wanasema Lushoto ni Geneva ya TZ na kweli Lushoto pako hivyohivyo, tofauti tu ni hayo majengo ila mandhari yanafanana sana.
