Gurkhas Pay Up To $30 For Chicken!

In Nepalese Rupees that’s up to 2340 approximately for one chicken!
But you should totally pay buy it! Especially when you’re working in one of the world’s most dangerous places = AFGHANISTAN!

It is said that a goat can cost up to $200 US dollars! Steep price, but totally make’s sense when you’re working and putting your life on the line. Who care’s about it being expensive right?

  1. Been there and done that. We used to pay approx. $100 for a goat and $10-20 for chicken in 2010. Anyway, its better to eat chicken/goat curry than eat “tutaphuta” compo rations!!
