Big Day 1/10/10

High today was was 60F, low (right now) 45F. higher than some places in Florida, nyaaaaaah!

Early movie Sherlock Holmes (dubbed in Spanish), enjoyed it immensely even if it isn't at all faithful to Conan-Doyle. I do recommend that everyone see the old Basil Rathbone Sherlock Holmes flicks made in the 40s to get a baseline for Hollywood's progression in the development of the character.

Lunch followed at a new burger joint, styled after Johnny Rockets in the US. A single half pounder mushroom burger was about $3.20 and a double bacon cheese about $8.00. These prices are outrageously high for Mexico though there's nothing else like it in Zacatecas. A street corner burger with cheese, lettuce, tomato, cream, mayo, ketchup and mustard is about $1.60, still high for the working class. I'd say the quality of the food beats Johnny Rockets.

Then there was 4 hours in Wal-Mart buying, hopefully, a month's worth of groceries and supplies for 2 people, $130. No heat there, by the way. Cold.
