Afghanistan hypotheticals: yet another bleg

Let’s say, hypothetically, that I was going to wade back into murky and piranha-infested Afghanistan job-search waters and wanted to calculate some monthly costs…

– What is the cheapest decent guesthouse in Kabul?Rumors of this $300 per month guesthouse that, strangely enough, no one ever remembers the name of, have been floating my way for some time. Is it an aidworker urban legend, or does it actually exist?

– Is Medex Travmed International really only $113 per month for someone under age 25 working in Afghanistan? That seems too good to be true.

– The delightfully-named “Death and Dismemberment Insurance” –something people normally buy? Any experiences with that (the insurance, not death or dismemberment)?
