So I got a third world tooth infection. Went to the dentist today, paid Rs. 200 - about $2. I still need to buy antibiotics for it (pharmacies are closed Fridays before the prayer/jummah), but that won't be much more.
Went to get an eye check up right after, paid Rs. 20 for that and Rs. 2750 for 2 pairs of new glasses, ready within 2 days (as opposed to the 2-3 weeks it takes in Europe iirc).
Sometimes Pakistan is just so awesome.
And crap, I've paid less than $100 in my life for dental stuff, in total, including braces, a filling on that same tooth that's bothering me now which needs to be replaced every couple of years or so and random other stuff. Also professional cleanings.
What do you get for that $1,000 next month?
