The three cheapest things you can find in Venezuela

sunny 32 °C

In general the prices are not that low here, but there are three things which are the cheapest in the world.

The first one, and I've already mentioned it, are fake breasts. I was told (not that I was reasearching) that an operation costs about 1000-1500$. Crazy.

The second is petrol. Any ideas how much a liter of petrol costs here? 1 dollar, 50 cents? No, don't even try to guess...For a full tank of petrol, which is about 40 liters, you will pay 70 cents!!! For the whole tank! Unbelievably! This is not a misprint, for the whole tank, not for a liter. After a day of car rental the company even did not charge us anything for the pertol. Can't believe it myself. Local people don't even walk here, they just drive.

And third, are oysters. One day when there was no wind, I went kayaking to mangrove trees lagoon, called la Restina. It was quite fun, because we were going through the tonnels of mangrove trees, sometime having to lye down to the bottom of kayak to go under the trees. Three hours of kayaking and I feel my arms getting stronger. Though for myself it is fun just for one time, since I like speed, and it is not possible to go too fast wth paddling. And oysters just grow on these margrove trees. So we went to the nearby beach and I had 36 oysters paying for it 2.5 dollars. How about that?

So if you want to have new breasts, eat cheap oysters and pay nothing for gasoline, come to Venezuela.
