Financial Friday 40

Location: Tbilisi [Republic of Georgia]

Week 40….

Transportation

All transportation costs were metro trips ($0.19 a piece). It’s a bit high on Tuesday because I used my card to get an extra person in on our way to a restaurant. What, I have friends?!

Accommodation

The cost for October comes out to $5.48 per day while November is $5.67 per day. That extra day changes the cost slightly. Other than that, nothing really happened here.

Food

On Tuesday, I went with some new friends to a Yemeni restaurant. One of the people I was with was from there, and wanted to showcase his culinary culture. Unfortunately (according to him), the food wasn’t that good. I still thought it was fantastic, but…. That just makes me want to go to Yemen to see how awesome this food really is. Will it live up to the hype?

Other

Travel insurance: $8.64 per day.

VPN service: $0.13 per day.

Amazon Prime: $0.33 per day.

On Friday, I bought some jello: $0.50. I thought I could make fake blood out of the strawberry flavor, but I ended up not using it. One of my roommates had make-up that worked much better.

Also on Friday, I bought a pad of sticky notes: $3.34. I’ve been writing the Georgian names of objects on them, and attaching them to the appropriate surfaces. It’s been somewhat effective having to look at the words every time I want to use something.
