Well there you are, a budget trav'la treking about, then all of a sudden your get a grumble in your stummy..but what to do, you can't find a market to buy anything, your frugle ways will not let you eat at a restaurant...Then you see it, the big red cross atop the hospital, all hospitals have cafeterias for employees and visitors..and its cheap eats, go on in and chow down, and know that your cheap ass can afford it!!!!

This same trick can work at College or University cafeterias as well, even a high school, but talk to the principle before you try that one.

Never thought about that one. I´d imagine that eating at the colleges/universities will also give you some great opportunites to meet locals and have some interesting conversations.

Anyone see a movie about 10 yrs ago called "Barcelona?" It made me want to go to Spain and hang out at the university, meet some students, and have some deep international conversations.

Turns out going to a park and striking a conversation with someone sitting on the same park bench as you can be just as interesting, and in my case, life altering B).

Good tip on the cheap eats!
