The Cheapest Year of My Life

The data are in. After one year at site paying my own expenses, it turns out I spent a whopping 1,563,880 dram.

That is about $4,285.

It’s easily the cheapest year of my life. If you factor in a couple vacations I took, it’s still less than $5,000.

Not reflected in the numbers:
Long term health costs from 1 year spent in Armenia

As another PCV here says, “You give them 2 years of your life, they take 10.”

    Sounds like it’ll be easy to transition back to the US where good jobs are limited, or if you have a job, you’re probably underemployed!

    And Peter, the last time I truly popped some Champagne was when we won the treble with State.
