Johnny the pilot nailed me talking on Skype yesterday, he is presently in Dubai, this guy is not a jet setter, he flies the private jets.
"how is your book going?"
Well, ever since I left Cote d’Ivoire the progress has stalled, 80 percent done, but I have a major stumbling point for readers. I need to nail down all the best specific CITIES to live for 1-3 months in the world on 500 Dollars per month budget, not an easy task. The 500 Dollar parts is easy, Bob a truly experienced perpetual traveler for over 5-7 years explained there are about 175 countries where you can live for fewer than 500 Dollars per month.

"IMHO there are over 200 member countries in the UN. There are only about 25 countries that I consider expensive in the world. These are the countries that all the backpackers come from. I think almost anywhere in the rest of the world one could get by on 500 bucks a month if you rent an apartment by the month and stay out of restaurants and Bars and do your own cooking and cleaning and laundry etc. If you want the live the life of a colonial lord and to have servants and people cleaning up after you and cooking for you well... To live cheap, you need to not consider the following:
USA Canada England, Ireland, France, Belgium, Germany, Holland, Switzerland, Sweden, Denmark, Italy, Norway, Finland, Japan, Taiwan, Korea, Australia, New Zealand and a few others I haven’t been to."

Dark Blue is Difficult, the rest are easy.
Look hard, there are a lot of lighter blues in Eastern Europe.
Cheap Country Map - DARK Blue is Expensive, all the rest a 500-dollar budget is easy if you do not live like a colonial lord, someone who takes his or her culture and pops it on top of the existing culture. This is for people who want to live in another country, and not the ones who want to create a Little America inside another country. Think about how the Chinese create China town inside the USA, well the USA and Europeans do the same, these can be islands of expensive living.
December 2010 List of Cities OK to Interesting Enough for 1-3 Months
This is not a popularity contest for normal people; I am calling in all my favors with perpetual travelers. I have prodded a few by writing them up to five times, to get around to tell me. If you have over 25 non-Europe countries under your belt, recommend all the cities you can think of, but realize, I am trying to pull information from "Real Travelers." The book is going to highlight the best of the best, cut through the crap and explain how to find the nicest and cheapest cities to live in, with the need to visit 88 countries like me, cutting to the quick.
