Location: Tbilisi [Republic of Georgia]
Another week has passed already. It seems so short, and yet so long. But here we go….
On Friday, a friend and I went to a restaurant across town to watch a world cup game. He didn’t feel like walking and called a cab. 10 minutes and a lot of him speaking to us in Russian (which neither of us understand), we arrived for the price of $1.15. Not bad; not bad at all.
So this is easy. Rent for this month comes out to $5.48 per day. It’s even paid in US Dollars so I don’t even have to convert it.
Have I mentioned food here is cheap? It’s especially so since most days I’ve run down to a grocery store, and that’s constituted my ‘food’ spending for the day. On a related note, I’ve gotten a lot better at making oatmeal (porridge for UK types) taste good; learned how to not hard boil eggs; and have come up with the most delicious summer salad recipe ever invented. The produce here is so cheap, and mostly grown in people’s back yards or on real farms. I must eat all of it!
Way too expensive travel insurance: $8.64 per day.
This no WiFi thing is not fun at all. I had to top up my data on: Friday, Saturday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. One of the days, my computer gobbled up 500MB downloading an update…arg! Blogger problems….
On Monday, I bought a pair of flip-flops: $4.11. The ones I’ve been using as shower shoes are getting pretty beat up, and I didn’t want to continue contributing to their wear and tear. Plus, they’re cheap.
So, not quite as much as last week’s spending. It will go a lot lower when WiFi gets hooked up though. I could be saving so much money.
Until next week….
