As promised, this is the follow-up to my original cost of living article in February.
This one includes data for the first three months of 2013.
For details behind each of the categories, as well as my overall standard of living, visit the original post.
Monthly Cost of Living
* Note, my rent refers to the cost of a room rental in a 3-bedroom apartment in Poblado, including my share of the utilities.
PS – Due to minor changes in the currency, there was a little fluctuation month to month (as seen in the Rent category).
PPS – I didn’t take any trips, aside from an overnight trip to San Antonio de Pereira. My weekend in Santa Elena was a press trip, so I didn’t pay out of pocket.
PPPS – I did not include a charge for cosmetic dental work, or prescription drugs, as I thought the monthly figures would be more useful if I left those out.
