What can you buy...

for 10 cents? or 20 cents? One of the most amazing(surprising or shocking also comes to mind) is the cost of things. With some exceptions, most goods and services are very reasonable (or just plain cheap). The other day I bought an ice cream for Dorian that cost 20 cents. The antibiotic eye drops that Arthur needed cost 18 cents. And, my ticket to the Children's museum cost a whopping 11 cents (5 rupees).
Dorian and Arthur got in for free. Of course, those examples are the very low-end of the price spectrum, but it does put a little perspective on things...

  1. Similar to the Rail Museum (which is one of my kids' favorite places) ... pittance to get in.

    I think it's cool though that some of these attraction spots are reasonably priced ... we enjoy seeing the sights and learning with folks that might not otherwise be able to afford it.
