wealth is relative

In the U.S. I am a member of the middle class. I try not to live an exorbant life. Here in India I feel so rich. Of course there are Indians whose standard of living is the same as mine. But here the poverty is so much more obvious.


Everything is so much cheaper here in India(except electronics). We have been doing some shopping, mostly buying books and clothing. Yesterday we went to a Fashion store where we had about 6 people waiting on us. It seemed like they pulled out about half of the clothes in the store wanting us to try them on. They gave us excellent service. Jonathan bought about 6 dress shirts for less than U.S $50.
