I have decided that I don’t want to offer ads anymore on my website. I don’t think it does add value to the content. To be able to keep running this website I do not want to ask donations from the readers either. At the moment I have enough funds to pay for the upcoming few months to keep this website running. I hope I will be able to get more funds in the future to keep doing what I love. If I feel like people really enjoy reading my blog posts I will do my best to continue after these few months! Through you can donate how much you can miss and would like to contribute!  Any help is appreciated! Thanks a lot for making it possible to share my knowledge and daily experiences with you all! Much love ❤ !

  1. Are you sure about the meat?
    Somebody told me this week it was 2000 bs (~6$),
    and somebody else sent me a picture of an improvised butchery where it was sold in 9$ (in dolars!).


    • Yes, that is the price at which they sold it in the butcher shop where I live, but prices vary and increase every day. For a more updated price, visit the “Living cost in Venezuela” section, updated every week.
