The posting on May 15, 2015 by Anonymous is not accurate.
Any one who pays $50-$80 for a taxi is a complete mug! Uber is less than 500 shillings for that route, about a tenth of the price. Tusker (not 'Tuska')beer RSP is 140 shillings a bottle, so where he buys it at 350 shillings a bottle is a 5 star hotel perhaps? Normal bars it's 220-250 shillings, and I am a mzungu. I would like to know the name of the average restaurant where they paid 12,000/- shillings. I am guessing it was 'Seven'. A good meal at an average place like Ocean Basket is half that. Again, this guy seems an easy target to get ripped off. Agree that 18,000 on groceries is $180, not $450, so that would be $360 per month. You could also decide not to shop at Nakumatt (not 'Nakumart')as it is the most expensive supermarket - Tuskys or Naivas are at least 25% cheaper. And as for the comment about graft... ridiculous, and overtly racist. 'Self-inflicted' gratuities?? Ha! Who pays that? What is it?! I certainly don't pay it, and nor do any of my expat friends, and I have lived here for 5 years. Please stay in Vancouver. Don't travel.
