I’ve been meaning to do this, and I think I will soon. I usually get a lot of questions (from travbuddy, a traveling social web site I belong to) about costs in Lebanon….and plus, I know I spend wayyyy more than I need to. Actually, you aren’t doing too bad for yourself, it could be much much worse…and it’s easy to pick out some items that are a dead give away of wasting money, like ATM charges for example–those add up! Do you find yourself feeling separated and forgetting about the values you gained in India the longer you are away from it? I find that when I am separated from some one or some place for some time, I start to feel detached from it completely..but I assume your blogging certainly keeps your memory fresh and doesn’t allow you to become so detached from however long ago you went there, especially if you are thinking about returning.
