if someone is plannig to visit uruguay and need data just send me an email

#DroBuddy on May 09, 2014 :
All prices are in Uruguayan Pesos, and the prices listed above are for monthly expenses.

https://www.google.com/search?client=ubuntu&channel=fs&q=currency+exchange&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8#channel=fs&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&q=1%20USD%20to%20UYU This link is to Google's currency exchange rates from $U Pesos to USD (but can easily be changed to Euro, British Pound, Aussie Dollars, et al.

And, for the record, a quick search on Google (literally only took a few seconds) would have answered both of your questions, so please do your own due diligence next time. Albeit, I'm sure others will have the same question so I chose to answer real quick. But, honestly, if a quick search (or common sense) is too much of a hassle for you, then please don't consider moving to another country... You are just fine where you are now.
#D. Marcus on Mar 15, 2014 :
Are the comparisons done in USD$
#weilunion on Dec 25, 2013 :
Are these prices for the month? There is no indication of what period of time these prices are for. Can you help?

Thanks
