Bird talk - Le Jaseur
With our dollar being where it is, is travelling into the U.S. going to be fairly costly, or will it be fairly reasonable with the cost of goods being cheaper there?

Response :
Ed.: We have always found it to be cheaper living in the U.S., even at a lower dollar-exchange rate than today. We make use of Costco and Sam’s Club memberships for most of our needs, with occasional visits to Walmart, and gasoline is cheaper. With a little research, eating out can be quite inexpensive, too. Property taxes and condo fees are usually exorbitant, though.
