A falafel sandwich here only costs $1.64.
In the neighborhood where my boss lives, I walk weekly by the same Arab deli, peering shyly through the glass and then not going in. Today, I had resolved to go in and eat a falafel. When he asked me for 5 pesos, I thought my Spanish was going. (cinco. . en serio?)
Feeling pretty full and rich after the sandwich, I decided to treat myself to Baklava (Baclawa in Spanish). 82 cents later, I'm both satisfied and angry at myself for not going in before.
