After realising there are several (about six) very tidy young ladies in Edinburgh just now @ about £60 that I'd like to shag or shag again, the mounting costs made me take a step back. Six times 60 is 360 (yes, I can even do that while thinking about sex), which if spread over six months is not bad. But I get fed up of waiting for my monthly treat like some puppy. I don't actually want
to pay 60 quid - for a nice shag with a nice civilised young lady, £10 would feel far more comfortable as I took it out of the stitching in my pocket after cooking my brown rice and bowl of miso soup.
So I started playing with Kayak
trying to link up countries that would give me decent service for a tenner. S.E. Asia is out, cos one hooker looks more or less the same as the next one - squashed noses and varying degrees of hey-I'm-ugly. So South America
After keying in a few multiple options, it offered a round trip from Rio to Lima, Peru and Colombia for about £500. Which means if it's that much now it will possibly be even less once I've checked dates and logged onto the local airlines via their home sites (strangely, translating a airline website from Spanish or Portuguese seems so costly that the airfares accumulate extra £££ on the way).
Does anybody else do this crazy sh*t? I don't want a nice package tour. Just the cheapest way of getting between several places where cost-of-pussy is roughly equal to cost-of-chips.
There's three 'expensive' countries in South America - Brazil, Argentina and Chile, and even those aren't expensive once you sew your moolah back into the lining of your trousers. But Colombia and places with healthy infestations of coco plants barely know what an international flight is, much less how to overcharge the dribble of tourists. The distances mean buses are a no-go cos they take days (although Brazil to Argentina is doable). I need those things that go up in the air.
What's the best way to mix and match and still pick and mix? I have very few requirements. Can live off fruit and local equivalents of 'food.' Carry only a small bag that goes over one shoulder. And can go without a shag for a week at a push as long as I make up for it the following week with my oats and barley at least twice a day.
I'm going back to my Edinburgh brown rice diet so I can afford it.
