you also need to take into consideration the cost of living there. A hamburger may cost us 4.00 here, but much less there (depending on where you go)

My wife and I while on vacation ate a meal for 5.00 for the two of us (in usd) the same meal would have cost us easly 25.00 here in the US.

I actually know the cost of living there. Its cheaper than the US, but its still expensive because P200 a day wont get you much. Most families must live in a small room with 5 or 6 people.
