Cost of Living

To give you an idea of the cost of living in Armenia, consider that I live on about $600 per month. Here are some fun data points:

• 1 liter of milk – About $1
• 1 portion of fresh pineapple on the street, chopped into bite-size pieces – $.55
• A typical lunch in a local restaurant (including a simple soup or beans, a piece of meat, rice, plátano, avocado) – $3.30
• Breakfast (including scrambled eggs with tomato and onion, arepa, buñuelo, hot chocolate) – $1.70
• 1 empanada – Less than $.50
• A hair cut and blow dry – Less than $15
• A french manicure – $3.30
• A two-hour Spanish tutoring session – Less than $10
