What will $1.00 USD buy you in Kenya?

I will be in Nairobi in December and was wondering what the cost of simple items will be? A bottle of water? A can of coke? An average sized meal perhaps some rice and beans with a piece of chicken or steak? Or a typical Kenyan dish? Just trying to figure out how far I can stretch my dollar. Any info would be great! Thanks for your help!

Pretoria, South...

you can get a 500 ml bottle of mineral water or a bottle of coke for just under a dollar!thats from the supermarket - from a bar/restaurant its twice the price..

food price varies drastically where you eat...fast food is not necessarily cheap here..and a good steak will cost you at least ten dollars..

good luck!
