Hello Miriam's Mother

I looked in my wallet to discover that I have $26 to last me the next 21 days. Sweet.

Fortunately, you can live comfortably on $1 a day as long as you don't have to travel or go to the doctor. Though I suppose the term comfortable is relative. Another volunteer introduced me to the glories of porridge the other day, which costs about 10 cents for a large bowl. I'm also planning on showing up to hang out at friends' and neighbors' places around mealtimes, since they usually feel compelled to invite you to eat with them if you're at their house when food is about to be served.
