Locations: Tbilisi, super small (population less than 100) village [Republic of Georgia]
Week 42, here we go….
On Friday, Monday, and Tuesday, I used took the metro for $0.19 per ride.
On Saturday, some friends and I went to a tiny village 60 km west of თბილისი (Tbilisi). 5 of us got a taxi out there; my portion of which was $2.99. Not bad for an hour and a half ride.
Rent for the month is $5.67.
On Monday, I paid the utility bill for electricity and water. My portion came out to $3.73.
So…typical food bill. Of note is we bought groceries for our time at the village on Saturday and Sunday. Our bill came out to $9.33 per person for two days; and we weren’t cheap. We bought a lot of the pricier food, and a good deal of alcohol. Have I mentioned I love საქართველო (Georgia)?
Travel insurance: $8.64 per day.
VPN service: $0.13 per day.
Amazon Prime: $0.33 per day.
On Friday, I bought two books written by Alain de Botton (a modern philosopher). On Love: A Novel was $9.63. The Course of Love: A Novel was $12.83. These aren’t exactly the cheapest books, but I figure they’re well worth their price since they deal with philosophy. I think we could all use a little more philosophy in our lives.
So there we go. Another decent week. My wallet is really loving this country. See you all next week.
