Dtube Short Story: Living On 3 Dollars For 24 Hours/Food Edition/Istanbul is VERY CHEAP | Short Story 016

in dtubedaily •  5 days ago


What's up dtube, my name is Harshil Patel and I'm dropping another short story today..THIS TIME... LIVING ON 3 DOLLARS OF FOOD FOR 24 HOURS.

So for those who don't know, I'm living in Istanbul for the next 4 weeks. I didn't realize how cheap this city was until I got here. So I decided to give myself the challenge to live off 3 dollars of Food for a full 24 hours.

I wanted to create a story to showcase that traveling can be cheap if you are smart about it.

I'm not saying 3 dollars for everyone. But for those who want to see the world, this video might be your inspiration :)

Final Thoughts:

Grateful :)

thanks man! thanks for watching :P

W/ $3 in Venezuela, you can live a week heating good food.
Imagine how is our economy

·

In Turkey, 3 dollars was nothing a little bit before. It was impossible to buy this things with just that. Now... Thanks to our economy we are getting poorer and poorer.

·
·

I invite you to study the current economy of Venezuela. This is a disaster. we are also becoming increasingly poor thanks to the social / communist model currently implemented and that has people eating from the garbage.

·

·

I was chatting to another steemians from Venezula recently and she said it’s still pretty ok for tourists to come visit and have a good time without spending too much money is that true?

·

hello @chekohler
If a foreigner comes to spend a few days, it's fine.
Bring dollars and sell it in the black market and make a fortune with the local currency.
You go to a good hotel and there you will not lack anything.
But you can not be late at night because you're in danger. You will find many people asking for food in the restaurants.
If you come to Venezuela, you must know well where you will arrive, where you will be and the places you will visit because the same security force will take away money, and faster if they are dollars.
I love my country. Venezuela is a beautiful country that is badly damaged by its own people.

Thanks for your honest opinion on the country I really appreciate it and look forward to learning more about it before I plan my visit! I will be looking for more content from you showing off your country and giving real advice on how to enjoy your visit there! Sorry my voting power is. It goo enough to give you a proper upvote so I sent you some SBD directly instead

·

·
·

Thanks, man. w/ thas SBDs i can sell and buy food for my family.
many steemians of Venezuela are in this social network for an extra entrance of money and thus be able to help each other in their day to day.
I will make a complete article in these days about the situation of the country and I will share it to you directly. and if you have any other questions or require any help, do not hesitate to ask for help, I will gladly help you.

Thanks for you gift, my friend. any help, im here for you @chekohler

·
·
·

Yes, I know that, last year I went to Venezuela for 2 days with a ship. I work on ships. It was... I don't want to say bad but sad instead. It was sad.
We were able to buy a lot of food fot a very little money.

·
·
·
·

that's the word, "SAD" @captainsailor
people is sad here in the country and nobody cares the neighbor.
that's the hurt part, for me.

·

WOW. yeah that's crazy :/

·
·

Is a madness @harshilpatel
The black market for the dollar is sick. At this time $1 = Bs (Bolívares, local money) 2.700.000
W/ $50 you can have a great weekend.

I enjoyed this vid very much. For me, that huge bagel would be enough for the whole day.

·

I will say, that bagel did hit the spot for sure

Wow turkey is pretty cheap if you took 3 dollars and converted it to South African Rands you would get about R40 and you could literally buy nothing with that probably coffee and a donut and you would be done and you would have to skimp on the quality of both those items too

·

no way! I'm actuallly visiting cape town hopefully in August.

·
·

Wow, epic man! Lol holla at your boy steemit meet up! Also try this 3 dollar thing while you here and let’s see how far you get would be super interesting maybe I’m just boujee and you will end up showing me up lol

How fun it was. We always think we need a lot of money to travel and see some beautiful places, so we can not travel. But this interesting video made you realize that with the smallest cost, the best pleasures were won. Thanks for the inspirational video.

·

yes exactly! I think money can block people from doing what they want. But the idea of money can destroy or make people.

Very well put together vlog! I am glad to have found you, keep it up man!

·

hey zainenn! thanks for watching :) glad you like it :)

WHOLY. CRAP.

First off, I love this challenge.

Second, the story telling on this video REALLY inspired me to step up my game in my videos. THIS is how i've always wanted to make videos on here but I couldn't figure out the means to do this! You showed me a GREAT example!

Here in Korea, there are many folks from Turkey and the kebabs are REALLY good! I've always wanted to see more Turkish food and you showed me! Thanks for this Harshil!

·

hey man! thanks for watching and thank you so much for the kind words!!! pumped to see where you take your videos :)

Thanks for sharing in fact there are very few countries where people can survive with this amount.

·
