Wallow in your own misery if you must, but I know how cheap it (still) is to live here. Perhaps you just don't know how to economize.
When I have posted about the job market here I have been very negative, but I am not the kind of person who ever looks for jobs. Victoria did not ask about jobs, anyway.
From your previous posts, it does sound like you paid too much for some things here, especially bribes (since the day of may arrival I have paid none).
I have a much higher standard of living in Argentina than I did in Mexico or the US...for less money....and I have the numbers to prove it.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to re-emphasize that fact.
