A Typical Day in the Life of My Stomach/Wallet (in Kenya)

1 = hamri >1= mahamri

Breakfast:

  • Hamri (pastry) – 10 Ksh
  • Banana – 5 Ksh
  • Tea with milk – 10 Ksh

o   Total: 25 Ksh

Lunch

  • Omelette (2 eggs) – 20 Ksh
  • Chapati (tortilla-like pastry) – 10 Ksh

o   Total: 30 Ksh

Dinner

  • ¼ chicken, grilled – 100 Ksh
  • rice, with sliced tomatoes – 30 Ksh
  • Sukuma (Kale) – 15 Ksh

o   Total: 145 Ksh

Grand Total: 200 Kenyan shillings

Grand Total (USD): $2.50

Sometimes it’s good to remind myself that occasionally splurging on the grilled chicken is OK for me to do.  Thankfully, in other stomach news, I remain completely healthy and have not been waylaid by any stomach issues so far.  All of this biking and walking around is also trimming me down a bit!  I hope my final 10 weeks here will also be illness-free, cross your fingers for me  🙂
