      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

You poor bastards. We got a couple German butchers in town that have really good meat though expensive. I can get steaks for $2.50/lb, bacon less than a $1.00/lb, pate $0.75/lb, ham 0.50/lb. If I go to the market I a can buy a whole goat for $20-30 completely dressed and a whole sheep for $10-12 completely dressed. Alcohol though is beyond the local brew is expensive, my Chimay costs me $5 for a little bottle, but I can spend the same amount and drink Mutzig or Primus until I fall down. hahaha.gif cost $10 for a half and it's not half bad.

I am sure we have about 1000 times as many people to livestock here in Rwanda. It's crazy.

There is no way you're going to get a whole goat for that little in Istanbul. I doubt you could get that pricing anywhere in Turkey really. Last time I sacrificed, i think a sheep was about $130 or so...but I'm probably way off because it was three years ago.

Goats good eatin'

Wish I could get a goat for $30, I'd make curry goat every night.

Horse meat - thats a little weird though. I'd rather eat marmot.

horse meat isn't weird at all

 

130 for a sheep!? holy shit, I couldn't afford that haha

 

No shit that is Pygmy meat, there is no way I would pay that much. If told a Rwandan that you spent that much for sheep they would think that you are completely nuts.

Cass and Hite come to mind.....hahahaha

aahhh...you're familiar with our fine brews. don't forget the OB! when you go that low, they all taste the same. say luke, with all the stories about yak bouldering, i may have to head up there sometime!

with 75% "mountaineous" countryside, there is a lot of rock to be had. i wasn't really into rock until i came here last summer so i'm not all that good. i spent most of fall with an experienced friend (who's still recovering from an injury) documenting new sites in english, learning, getting frustrated, and getting hooked. there is also ice, but not as much and too far away from me. although, you're sure to find me here during the sticky hot summer days (check out the video).
