    since many of you seem well travelled/educated i figured i'd ask here...



    i have always wanted to go overseas (eastern europe, russia, etc.) for a while and see how a country really is - not just as a tourist pasisng through a few days and whatnot. that's cool too but i wanted to stay a bit longer and get a better feel of it. i've never been overseas before.

    i've looked into volunteer programs and oftentimes they cost 3,000 for a couple of weeks.

    questions:

    a.) any volunterr programs for a lot cheaper?

    b.) are there any jobs an american could possibly get being in another country? under the table or not?

    thanks for your help. i know i'd like to travel a lot but don't have a ton of money. i'd like to stretch it as far as possible.

    working very very hard in often dangerous and un-sanitary conditions......for free.

    I'm all for helping my fellow man and all but if it means I run the risk of catching typhus or being kidnapped/decapitated by muslim rebels in some 3rd world jungle then i better at least get some hazard pay.

    Most of the time you build toilets and plant inedible roots for starving natives.

    Hey, I don't see you out on the curb with your thumb out yet.

    No, wait, forget that. just take that greasy thumb of yours and stick it right up your ass!
