"Another banknote" Russia Favorite Tip by maxovna

Russia General: 192 reviews and 175 photos


Favorite thing: One more banknote for you to see - <b><font color=fuchsia> 100 roubles</b></font>. <b><font color=blue> What can we buy for it?</b></font> Two bottles of bad vodka (I mean of no good quality or a fake), a kilo of boiled sausage, 5 packets of cheap cigarettes... Do you know the average monthly salary of a Russian teacher, for example? It is about 2500 roubles - less than 100 dollars. Cool?

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
