Notes:

1) "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" - Hardcover as advertised (not discounted or used books).

2) "Modern Art" usually starts with van Gogh and French Impressionists, in some cases in the early 20th century; museum/gallery not necessarily in the country capital.

3) National average or typical rate in larger cities; if no public service is available, lessons from a private teacher (P).

4) Not premieres or other special performances, typical repertoire (e.g. Puccini: La Bohème, Verdi: La Traviata).
