    Ah, the name of the Hotel up high above the Square is the E&V Hotel. I have stayed there for months or a day, clean, clean, clean and just a 2 block walk to the best steakhouse in town, Casa Blanca.

    It takes 52 popta leaf (26) doubled to cover 4 sq ft, so 2000/4=500 x 52=26000 or $2080.00 mas or menos. This of corse is calculated on your stringers being every 6 inches apart.
