Lies, Lies, Lies yeah! Rubbish documentary never sharing the truth. The Black People are The Original Owners of everything you see today throughout the world.

The school system wont tell you about the Benin Empire, Kingdom Of Ghana, Mali Empire, Nok Civilization, Kingdom Of Kush, Songhai Empire, Land Of Punt, ect. They also will not tell you that the richest man known in recorded history was an African by the name of Mansa Musa.

It is true Europeans have accomplished a lot in terms of technological advancement since the industrial age. However the means by which they have gained their success was totally unfair to say the least. By destroying infrastructure in Africa, creating proxy wars, dividing tribes and downright stealing. Better yet erasing history and causing genocide. Look at what Leopold II of Belgium did in the Congo, truly despicable.

Eight thousand years ago, Zaire developed their own numeration system, so did Yoruba people in what is today Nigeria. The Yoruba system was based on units of 20 (instead of 10)

The Dogon people of Mali amassed a wealth of detailed astronomical observations. Many of their discoveries were so advanced that some modern scholars credit their discoveries instead to space aliens or unknown European travelers.

I am not going to even mention Egypt. Even though most scholars would attest that the earliest dynasties where of Black African origin. Sudan has more pyramids then Egypt in fact the pyramids found in Sudan are 2000 years older. What about the great sphinx of giza that depicts an African face but had the nose blown of to hide this fact. The dynasties in Egypt later on became more mixed as it was a melting pot.

All the technological advancements that have been made by "Europeans" and people in the west still suffer with depression, anxiety, mental health. In the time of Mansa Musa People most likely have actually enjoyed life. All this consumerism means nothing. Good health and living in unison with nature is key.

Since Britain decided to settle there prisoners in Australia and invade the land. They killed aboriginals in the hundreds of thousands. Raped and torched the women. Now fast forward to the present day and Australia Is a modern city with innovative new technologies. Going by your theory Aboriginals should be happier, healthier etc. But it is the opposite their traditional life has been destroyed. Their health worst then ever before with high rates of alcoholism etc. Prior to European invasion they were happy living in unison with nature.

John 3 (KJV) - ዮሃንስ
16: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17: For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18: He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
19: And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.John 14 (KJV) - ዮሃንስ
6: Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
7: If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.Romans 10 (KJV) - ሮሜ
8: But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
9: That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10: For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Nepal Documentary | Living on a Dollar Madagascar (Documentary, Discovery, History) 8 months ago   46:17

Our full living on a dollar a day in Nepal documentary. Check out our story and exact breakdown of our expenses:

Thanks to Sudin KC for all his photography and videography work on this documentary! If you want more of Sudin's work, follow him on

Subscribe to our channel and email subscribe on our website to keep close tabs on what's going on.

We filmed from July 17th-August 17th, 2015.

Another Day, Another Dollar documentary was intended not as much as a look into life on a dollar a day, as much as a showcase on how to be content on less, and how life is like for us and others in Nepal.

The documentary was originally divided in 4 parts, uploaded in November 2015, with a total time of about 45 minutes.

The Rules
So we came from the angle of already living here, not starting fresh. Locals living on very little already have a home, basic resources, maybe a bicycle or a motorbike for the family.

Before we embarked on this challenge, we had to set some ground rules, and we will make things as transparent as possible for you.

First up, keep in mind this does not include our visa costs, internet, or rent. Our visa is an expense locals don’t have but we need to pay as foreigners. And we were forced to get Internet ever since YouTube started refusing the submission of VHS tapes for video uploads. Not impressed, YouTube.

Secondly, we chose a high exchange rate to use for the Nepali rupee against the American dollar, so we will be working with 107rps each/day as an average, although for simplicities sake, you can think of 100 rupees as one dollar or 100 cents. We will do it for a whole month with no breaks, meaning our budget as a couple is $60 for the month, or 6420 rps.

This is around 20% less than one person earning minimum wage would make. Over 30 per cent of Nepalese live on less than US$14 per person, per month, according to the national living standards survey conducted in 2010-2011.The average daily income in Nepal is closer to $2 a day. Having said that, if we were to spend the average income during this challenge, we would have no problem paying for our rent as well. Keep in mind, though, many local families already own the family home and don’t have to pay rent.

Our living on a dollar is not only our food. No, that would be too easy. It includes cosmetics, shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, vehicle repairs, and any medicine we might need. We are also using cooking gas, which costs about 8cents a day. Many people especially in the rurals don’t use cooking gas, but use wood fires instead for cooking, which if we were to do also would make it a lot easier to keep in budget. But easy is for losers. Just kidding… Since the documentary, we have been forced to cook on wood, and it is not “easy,” but time consuming. It does save about $4/month doing it that way though. But I’d rather pay for the gas in most cases.

To make it easier to calculate our expenses, we put away lots of our stuff that we bought already to start fresh for the month and not get confused or tempted into using something we already bought before.

As we considered what we need to spend on non-food items, we came to realize that this was more of a challenge than anticipated. Blah.

Our Budget
Not only did we stay in budget, but in 30 days we spent an average of $0.85 per day. As we were going according to the Nepali calendar of 32 days for that month of Saun, though, the money we saved allowed us to treat ourselves to a trip and nice meal for the last 2 days when we went to Sauraha, and Chitwan National Park.

We thank everybody for their support in making this documentary and helping us get things going as “YouTubers” or “travel vloggers!”
