I remember a friend once told me, "Don't compare and don't convert. Each place has its own character and I consider it disrespectful, particularly to its people, to compare one to another. They can never be equal. One will stand out or one will fall short of the other. Same is true for money matters. The value of a currency varies from one country to another. Once you start converting a foreign price to your own home currency, either you'd end up buying a lot or none at all", she says.
