Total Time: 20 days
Exchange Rate: 1 dollar=4.3 pesos and counting. Seriously, Joshua bought a pair of shoes…the price had gone up since they were marked. Not cool.
Cost of a meal: 44 pesos for a grass fed hamburger at McDonald’s…don’t worry, we were only fooled once. In all honesty, we cooked for ourselves a lot due to the fact that food was expensive and parillas aren’t as good as we’d hoped.
