We went downtown to drop off a month’s worth of laundry ($220 pesos for 22 KG of laundry! Cheap!). We then had lunch at a little waterfront restaurant while we waited for the phone call to tell me how her meeting with the boss went. The call did not come so I thought I would try to use the card anyway and it worked! I have 15 days of service that will see us out of the country.

It is run by a couple who appear to be husband and wife. They will never get rich but they will earn a living and buy lots of tortillas for their kids!
