More on Mexico's Value Today -Yes, I am Amazed everyday!

I just walked back from the Laundry. I had twice the Laundry done than I could cram in my Backpack or carry (coming to Guatemala). I had a lot of clothes stored in bodega here to add to my wardrobe. Included 4 pairs of heavy Levi's - 21 pieces total. All: 5 Kilo's for 4 Dollars! This morning I bought over 1/2 lb (1/4 Kg) of freshly roasted coffee for $3.25. I only like to buy 1/4 - 1/2 lb at a time for peak freshness. Epicurean habit.

I splurged and had a gourmet multi-course lunch and drinks in a beautiful artsy Colonial Plaza across from a violin school by a NY trained Chef with dessert and an Americano/cream coffee -- $5.45. Took an hour to eat, the presentation was impressive and the ingredients were top grade. The 3 Chef's were attentive, repeatedly visiting the table.

I walk out of the WalMart with several full bags costing me $20. Lasts all week in the fridge. All I can carry. My landlord told me "You are eating REALLY well!" The WiFi is usually up and it's 4X faster, like you pointed out - included in my $250/month full Apt rent (if I wanted to lose the twice/week cleaning, 8 hours work done total) my place would set me back $200, but why bother? Take (!) THAT USA debt trap!!!

If you are a remote worker with a laptop based job you would live MUCH better than back in the Home Country. ¡Viva Mexicó! - Chris
