I went to the grocery store today. I bought a package of four double rolls of toilet paper, one filet Mignon steak, one chicken thigh and leg, enough baby red potatoes for two meals and two cans of beer. Total cost was 60 pesos. Today that is four dollars American.
I had a delicious lunch from Gigi at the Boston Deli; two Halibut steaks, rice pilaf, mashed potatoes, cooked fresh carrots and broccoli and french bread for 35 pesos, two dollars and thirty three cents. I can't afford to eat this good in the States.
