Living on fresh foods from the market place, what would it cost to feed an elderly couple?
A healthy, Mediterranean diet hopefully will also be affordable. Can anyone help with prices roughly?
Thanks.

Due to high corruption in Iceland, Mortgage Interest Rate is rather complicated as the banks tend to hide the real prices as indexation.
The truth is, no matter for how long you pay off the loans, they rise higher from what you pay within three years, so technically it should be above 100%.
-just note, that it's complicated, and cannot be measured as a percentage value.
