Gas station attendants usually wash customer's windows for a tip. A $5-$10 peso tip is appreciated, a fact that didn't dawn on me until half the trip was completed. Did not see a single self-service station. Prices are determined by the government and it's all the same, from a remote mountain to popular beach resorts.
Or Pino for short. Very hilly city.

Thankfully, cows don't prance like deer.
Another popular beach resort. Waaaaaay more laidback than any town I've seen. Very few police around.

I wonder if they have mustard or vinegar pork. Highly doubt it.

I have in good authority that if you do your time in Federales HQ, you get rewarded with one of these in your home town. No chinese-made desktop version here, my friends!

The waves were a little stronger than normal. Saw lots of surfers in the water and walking around. Maybe that's wht it's so laid back.

Had not had any seafood yet, so I treated myself to a beachside restaurant lunch.
Drew???
Reasonable Prices
Interesting... Artwork...
Sure, those ice cubes are made with purified water... allegedly. I'll drink straight from the can, thanks.

Fish and Shrimp Surprise
Tasty, with melted cheese on top. The waiter said the red sauce was hot. When a Mexican, born and raised, that has been drinking hot sauce since childbirth, tells you that something is "hot", pay attention. I didn't. Paid the price.
Only cops I remember seeing.

And cheap, at less than a buck! Would've snatched 30 if that wasn't the only bottle left.

Bond???
A huge rock on the side of the road. Named "Rosary Stone" for some reason.
Though I love coconut water, I was hesitant to get some and the hundreds of roadside stands. I gave in. Good stuff.
These are also sold next to the water. They came with a bag of chilli to spice it up. I mean, seriously? Does it have to go with EVERYTHING??? Did not see spicy water, but I'm sure it's out there if I look. They even sell "Micheladas", which is beer with hot sauce. I'm not making this up.

Did not see a single solar cell anywhere though. For a country that produces its own oil, don't you find it strange they're seeking to implement more expensive energy alternatives?

Also with a strong Internet connection. My theory is, the cheaper the hotel, the less likely other patrons are carrying wi-fi devices. More bandwith for me :)
