One of my many challenges is getting a grip on cost and value. It is all very well to know that one my Canadian dollars will buy me 12.50 Pesos, but putting it in practice takes practice. Combien es? results in 80, 100, 400 etc., my little wheels are not able to keep up. Finally I come up with something that works for me, 100 Pesos is 8 Canuck Bucks.
What you see below is the Mexican equivalent of a McDonalds Value meal (59 Pesos, you do the math). An excellent illustration of the difference between cost and value.
