Tracking Pesos

I thought I would keep track of every peso. I thought it would be cool to know down to the peso how much I spent in eight weeks.

And for two and a half days I did.

I wrote down what I spent on accommodation, every meal, drink, snack, transport ticket, admission fee and tip.*

And then I stopped tracking.

I knew I wouldn’t be able to do it for the whole journey but I thought I would have been able to go at least a week. Instead, I went just two whole days.

On the other hand, I did manage to keep track of what I spent on accommodation each night for 60+ nights.

* It seemed customary to tip the driver/guard when they give (read:throw) you your pack when upon arriving at your destination.
