Two smaller rib-eye steaks for 22 pesos ($1.76) each! Not sure why we didn't buy more for the freezer, but you never know for sure how good they're going to be until you cook them....and it turned out that they were delicious!
The two local dogs came over while I had the Weber grill out doing the steaks and potatoes. Guess they could smell the food! They are such friendly guys!
Interesting Mexican news, the price of gasoline has for the first time reached 10 pesos per litre in Mexico. Given current exchange rates, this is about the equivalent of $3.00 per gallon, or $0.80 per litre, which (especially for Canadians!) is still pretty good. But it's a little tough on the Mexicans who have seen their price of gasoline rise steadily over the last four years. When we first came here I think it was 7.5 pesos per litre, but the exchange rates were not as favorable for Canadians as it is now, so for us, the price of gasoline in Mexico hasn't changed....but for the Mexicans it has.
But there seems to be just as many cars on the road as there was 4 years ago, so like Canada and the U.S., people just find a way to make do. I see people complaining about the price of gas rising again in Canada and the U.S., but people continue to drive at 65 or 70 mph on the freeways, so I guess it's not expensive enough yet!
Oh, and although there was a time change yesterday in most of the U.S. and Canada, the time doesn't change in Mexico until April 1...so now we are two hours behind Ottawa, and three hours behind Nova Scotia!
