In San Miguel I hardly ever use my car so the cost of gas doesn't matter. It costs me 400pesos, about $32 US.to fill up the tank. I do this about every two months.
Since I've been in Texas for three weeks I've had to fill the tank four times at a cost of $65US each time. You do the math.
I've spent so much time going from one side of the city to the other - 75 + miles. Yes, Houston is spread out.
Thankfully it has good freeways as long as you travel at off times.
Today as I headed out I smelled freshly mowed grass. One of my favorite fragrances. So to while the time away as I drove I thought of other things I love the fragrance of. Here are some: Gardenias, magnolias, a baby's skin, the sea, rain, freshly ground coffee, and coconut tanning oil, pine and eucalyptus trees.
Next thing I knew, since I had removed myself mentally from the tedious task of driving, I was at my destination.
