I have decided to rate - give a mark for - my travel experiences in every country I visit. It will be based on personal experience, so feel free to disagree. The ratings below are temporary and may well be changed in the light of later experiences. I give a rating out of ten to four areas which mainly concern the local people: travelling with them on public transport, taking into account the road conditions; the local food (variety and quality); their friendliness and hospitality towards foreigners; the cost of living for a foreigner on a budget.
Public transport: 5, terrible secondary roads, overcrowded means of transport;
- Friendliness and hospitality: 9, extremely kind and peaceful people;
- Cost of living for a foreigner: 8, definitely cheap, you can live on €10 a day.
