I tend to agree... after sending my son to the National Jamboree in July
and his having a great time we seriously considered the World...
Unfort it is $4,138 person from here, the Pacific Skyline Counsil which
is just south of San Francisco, CA.
One thing I find of interest is the fact that the $4, 138 includes a 3
day tour of the City of Santiago before playing home. One option for a
particpant is to spend only 1 day in this city and to fly home and the
cost is $3, 455.
This is a difference of $863.00... Now I hate to sound ethnocentric but
heck for $431.50 a day I could "buy" the city of Santiago, Chile...
What is so darn expensive???
Looking at this charge I can only assume that every other cost of the
trip is greatly inflated!!!
