The Cost of Living

Some everyday expenditures and | their American equivalents.

Fresh coconut: 15 rupees | ~ 33 cents

Chicken Maharaj Mac Meal: 150 rupees | ~ 3 Dollars and a sense of guilt.

Streetside vendor plate of food: 20 rupees
45 cents and 20 minutes on the toilet the following morning.

Late night visitors at your bedside: Origami cage made of newspaper
Reassuring your blind roommate that it's not that big.

Phallic fried food: Free, when it's made by the children's home | Well, it cost someone something.

Running into camels for rent after wandering around, lost the morning after an Indian wedding:
A glare from the boy who offered you a ride and was refused |
