Cost of Living - No Problema!
Many of you probably recall the early sixties travel guide written by Arthur Frommer called Europe on $5 a Day (He's still publishing them, but now it's $70 a day now and going up!). Well if that's the kind of traveling and bargain living you're hankering for, then head south young man (and woman), while $5 won't go last you though a day, $20 might, because it's still possible to find quality meals and lodgings south of "la frontera" (the border).
