Heres my cost recap of Bangalore and the city. I am rounding of the exchange rates to be about Rs40/- per Canadian dollar.
Accommodation is OK. I got myself a semi furnished 2 bedroom apartment for approx 15K INR for a month. Thats about CAD 500/-
Travel is cheap. Most of the time I spent an average of about 50-75 rupees to travel from here to there. This was using the 3 wheeler auto-rick's. However, the traffic and congestion is horrible. A white t-shirt looks gray by the time its afternoon !! A Chauffeured driven car costs Rs2500/- per day. [Note the Yellow toped vehicle - thats an auto]
B/fast can be picked up from anything like 10-20 Rs. most of the time I was feasting on the dosa's, idlies and vadas. The filter coffee is great. A bottle of water (1lt) is only 12Rs.
Dry cleaning costs about Rs15/- per piece. This includes washing and hand-pressing changes. The time I did my own washing (yeah, one drys their cloths on a a cloths line), I got my pants and shirts ironed out by the local ironing man, just at the side of my apt. It costs like Rs5/- per shirt or pant. [ heres a pic of the guy at the corner of my road]
Cover fee for a club is approx Rs200/- (weekday). This comes with a free coupon for a beer too. Beers in the pub costs like rs90/- and a Bacardi costs about Rs360/- . All in all - a nite clubbing costs a little less then $35/- Oh yeah, the chics are hot- very hot :)-
Shoppin malls are very crowded. No elbow room to move around. Boutique shops are better to get some fun stuff.
An average meal for 4 people in a 3star resturant works out to about Rs 2000/- , or about Rs500/- per person. Fancier places can work out to about Rs2000/- per head too for the evening:)-
My Old Mentor my EXO's garden is still the same. Beautiful and green !!
yeah and say hi to Sandy, My Aunts Dawg, who inisted on sitting between us , while we were chatting !! :)-
