Cost of Living Chart
Here’s an idea of what things cost in Asunción, Parauguay. I imagine things cost less in the country. On average, the exchange rate is 5000 Guaranis (Gs) to one dollar. (I apologize for the small size and blurriness but the chart was too small otherwise.)
Two things I forgot to put in the chart: One dozen eggs: 6,600 ($1,32) One liter of gas: 4,250 ($0.85, which is about $3.40 a gallon)
I overestimated the cost of milk. One liter costs 2,150 Gs (not 4,500), which is about $1.70 a gallon.
