Most expensive cities--not in U.S.

Thought this interesting: The Japanese cities of Tokyo and Osaka have retained their rankings as the most expensive in the world, while a strong currency is making the euro zone more pricey to live in, a new survey has found. The Norwegian capital of Oslo has overtaken Hong Kong as the third most expensive city, according to the "Worldwide Cost of Living Survey" by London-based Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) released Thursday. Hong Kong and Libreville, Gabon, were tied for fourth place.

Did the report say where the cheapest place to live was? I may be interested in finding it.

A fellow I used to work with, just retired to his boyhood home in Estonia. He says he bought a huge house for about 10k, has maids and a cook, a chauffeur and it costs him $100 per month for the help. This guy says he can live like a king there on much less than the average US Social Security check. His wife likes having all the domestic help. But misses the grand kids.
