yeah, uh, hi murro.
about those eastern european prices- as i am a resident of lithuania, i can tell you that prices here are OUTRAGEOUSLY low. for example, if you're looking into eating at mcdonalds, it's 7EUROS for a couple of nice big macs and all the bullsh*t that goes along with them.
next, it's BEER. a half a liter of premium lithuanian beer in almost any restaurant or cafe or bar or whatever - 1,5EURO. and if you prefer some nice park of sth, a bottle of that same premium liquor drops to - brace yourself - 0.5EURO.
so if you're planning to visit eastern europe, get ready for quite an odd experience here (i'm not talking about HOSTEL kind of experience, good lord, no), but rather more like the episode from EUROTRIP, where they got stuck in bratislava
with only $1.83
chick are ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS here (well, most of them), the countryside is awesome, just the local culture may seem a bit unfriendly or very conformist at times, but overall, lithuania or the baltic states in general are a cool place to hang about for a few days and have a good time.
and then get out of there to see the world. haha.
most of these apply everywhere, maybe just in summertime at sea resorts people will get greedy and the prices will go up a bit
2kilos of potatoes - a EURO
1kilo of fresh apples - 1-2EUROS
2L of bottled drinking water - less than a EURO
2L of coke - a EURO
1kilo of bread - a EURO
1L of milk - 0.5EURO
1L of yoghurt - 0.5-1EURO
600grams of the awesome cacao, chocolate and bisquit cake (sort of) called TINGINYS (THE LAZY ONE) -2EUROS (you gotta know where to look for it, but it's tastes better than anything you've tasted before)
if you think about tasting our local cuisine,
you will find yourself welcome at a number of restaurants that specialise in our traditional food- lots of meat and potatoes and fat and so on- and they will charge you sth like 5-15EUROS, depending on what kind of portions of the aforementioned wonders you prefer
so, to sum it up for now, you'll have to shell out sth like 10-15EUROS to stuff your stomach three times a day
and don't forget to take a trip to the seaside - especially the KURSIU NERINGA (i'm not quite sure how translate it now), and check out the wonderful sand dunes at sunset - IT TAKES YOUR BREATH AWAY...
y'all take care of yourselves now
