What Can $10 Get You in AFGHANISTAN?

Today in Mazar-I-Sharif, Afghanistan -- I bought 9 things for less than $10 USD! A turban, kebabs, shisha, rickshaw ride... and can you guess what else?!
Much like its neighboring countries of Iran and Pakistan, daily life expenses in Afghanistan are VERY CHEAP when compared to Western standards.
I had a lot of fun making this video around Afghanistan and I'm really enjoying this country so far. More than anything else, I hope that this video changes your perspectives about Afghanistan and shows you that life is existing here just like it does in your home country. And frankly, I find Afghan culture here to be the most untouched, raw and authentic in the world.

So $10 can buy a hell of a lot more in Afghanistan than in the USA? Well who would have thunk it eh? :| Pity he didn't see fit to examine the average daily wage in Afghanistan, not to mention its tax regime and availability and quality of public services and infrastructure, because without that information this video is meaningless.

What will his next video be called? "Beirut real estate is cheap compared to London"? :D
