July was a much more expensive month. I took a vacation to Lesotho and Durban, and I had saved enough money that I was able to spend only $50 from my American account. Yay me!
There was lots of good food and good adventures. Go to Lesotho. It’s an amazing enough place that I will likely plan another trip in warmer weather.
As for spending my stipend, I made two trips to the office that were reimbursable, but I did have to pay for a night out later in the month for the cooking contest I participated in. I was able to reign-in my grocery shopping, as well, to offset eating out in Durban.
