Location: Tbilisi [Republic of Georgia]
I’ve been traveling for 2/3 of a year. Let’s see where my money went this week.
On Saturday, I rode the metro downtown: $0.19. I had a bit of a pub crawl which involved a lot of drinking, and meeting new people.
By the time 5 AM rolled around, taxis were the only method of transportation available: $1.93. It’s a bit expensive for a cab here, but I was the only passenger so….
On Monday, I took the metro twice: $0.39. The first time was to go to the hospital (more on that later). The second was to go to English club after which I walked home.
On Tuesday, I took the metro twice: $0.39. These trips were to and from Georgian club where I got to show everyone just how terrible my Georgian is.
On Wednesday, I took the metro 3 times. To and from a language exchange, and downtown to hit up a bar that I walked home from.
Rent this month is $5.67 per day, and that’s all for this section. Easy peasy….
There isn’t much to report here. Saturday was a bit more expensive as I went out for food twice.
On Friday night, I had a bit of a scare. I wasn’t feeling well, and my head was messing with me a bit. Since one of the symptoms was chest pain and I still felt shitty on Saturday, I decided to go to the hospital. After a bunch of tests that determined I wasn’t in danger of imminent death, they told me to come back on Monday for another test. The bill for this visit was $105.04.
On Monday, I went back to the hospital for a stress test: $21.24. After that didn’t turn up anything troubling, I went home feeling much better. There’s still something not quite right that I want to get checked out, but I know I’m not going to die so….
On Thursday, I topped up my data for my travel carrier: $15.00. Not very exciting….
So this week was a little more expensive than last. I attribute it to my little hospital debacle. Considering all those tests would have cost me at least 4 times as much in the US, I’m still pretty happy though. I should post something about my hospital visit….
Anyway, see you all next week for more financial ramblings.
