Five Dollars

November 21, 2008

What can you buy for five dollars?

This blog is an interesting look at what you can buy around the world for five dollars.

A simple question but when you look at the site you see the differences between different parts of the world. We might spend five dollars on a cup of coffee while someone in Asia is paying that same five dollars to buy a lot of food.

    I think that that is an awesome site. I wonder what other people will think? (hint hint)

    (P.S. can you comment my blog from Winnipeg? I want a dot on my Clustrmap from there.)

    I like the five dollar idea. I truely thought about all the possibilities of how you could spend five dollars compared to here and other places. I really like your blog! Could you perhaps share the love and comment on my blog about common, everyday friendliness?

    That is a great topic to choose! It is amazing that we all live in the same world but our currency can have such diverse meaning. You can go al lot of directions with this topic, good luck!

    I really think that it is true lots of people suffer to get food for $5.00,and us we just spend it on somethifood thatng that is not as important as food that some people really need.
