What is the availability and cost of household help, and what types of help are typically employed by expatriates?
We had 4 employees (I do miss them!!!)
A maid 3x a week for U$77 dollars every 2 weeks
A pool guy 2x a week for U$46 dollars a month
And two gardeners (one was an apprentice of the other, we didn't pay him, only his boss) 3x a week for U$55 every 2 weeks.
