My family would be like the Caven family. Maybe a little bit healthier. I'd like to be like the Italian or Egyptian family.

Posted:very interesting indeed! All the varieties!

But I think the prices can only be taken with a grain of salt. Sure, $500/week for food sounds expensive, but you need to take into account the cost of living in that country and the kind of salaries people are making there. That's one of the reasons I don't like people translating prices into their own currency, because it rarely reports the situation accurately.

Posted:They could still afford to support the people from Sudan for a few weeks. Alteast until the Aboubakar's started stealing their jobs and destroying the very fabric of their society.

Sorry, no offence meant. But this is what some people (i know) really believe will happen if Sudaness (or any) refugee is "allowed" into Australia. Do they realise how little resources people have? And how fortunate most Australians are?

It discusts me. But this is not what the thread is about. Its a very interesting thread Masked52 smile

Posted:wooops - cost of living is actually reflected in the cost for those foods. Still Germans take home more, or save more than an average Sudanese family could.

Especially the Sudanese conditions are messy. Very messy to say the least. But the Sudanese economy seems to be promising...
