A little more expensive than usual but still ok.

And total spending for the year of 2020 is…. $8653.91! It’s a lot more than locals spend in a year, but far less than anyone I know that’s living in the West. And minus a few virus issues (which is almost everywhere on the planet at this point), my lifestyle is better than I ever experienced in the US. Perhaps this year, more people than ever will decide to leave their overpriced countries, and go see the world. It’s amazing out here!
