I found this interesting post by Chris at nomad4ever about the cost of living in Goa. Chris is a European who leads a "nomadic lifetstyle" in Asia after quitting the rat race. He has posted previously about the cost of living in the Philippines and Bali, so it is interesting to read his travel notes from Goa.
Chris's choice of items for comparing the cost of living (cigarettes, clothes and alcohol) may not be of interest to everybody, but it is no less relevant than the well-known Big Mac Index.
