Lodging: paid through the morning of Monday 27 March 2017
Food: sufficient until Monday 27 March 2017
Medicine: need to buy alprazolam in four to seven days, MXN$563.50. I’m already rationing it, which as I explained in a previous post, is not good.
Lodging: to lower my lodging cost, I must have enough cash to prepay for a month plus a deposit. I don’t have that. This is the problem I have mentioned over the years: poverty is expensive. Also, as I (partially) explained in the last post, one of the hidden costs of improper lodging is stress from noise, which lowers my ability to fix my life.
Food: without lodging that has a refrigerator and kitchen, my food costs go up and my diet gets worse. Again, poverty is expensive.
Some other one-time costs, without explanation:
Fix sleeping bag
Remove tumor on my chest
Substantial dental care
Possibly broken finger
Long term gastrointestinal problems that new technology might cure
Fine from Mexican government for overstaying my visa
Exchange rate: it was above 20 pesos per dollar. My most recent posts about my budget assumed 19.50 pesos per dollar, but the exchange rate is not moving in my favor: today it’s 19 pesos per dollar.
