    This is one of the last assets of the Hotel Anastasia. The engine has less than 50 hours of flight time, unfortunately parked uncovered in front of the Caribbean for three years.

    In the USA when you own something you have a title of ownership, whether it land or machinery. Seems in Nica all you have to do is point at something that is for sale and you can interrupt or complicate the sale of anything.

    A "Polizi" to my knowlage is a title, but if you owe someone real or ficticious they can embargo anything you own. And if you chose to fight it it is a real pain in the neck, better to work out a deal or something in a medieation.

    Tom, that book you linked to - The Birth of Plenty - dealt with this. You cannot have prosperity without the rule of law and clear property rights. 'Nuff said.

    Betcha I can buy that UL for $500, bondo the metal and patch the fabric, and sell it for $20k to a Gringo tourist.

    The key is to sell it fast before anybody knows you are doing it.

    Looks like you are having a good time Bill, by all the photos here and facebook.

    There was a time that I use to carry a couple cameras and a few lenses just about every place I went. Once I went to the PGA Championship they were holding near Seattle. I seen a pair of pro photographers carrying these GIANT lenses, the big white ones and it was like 100 degrees F. I was drinking a beer and using a camera the size of a pack of cigarettes. About that time I really started taking photography a lot less seriously and thinking of it as work. I carry a digital SLR now and use a zoom lens most of the time. I don't get great photos anymore, but I am happy enough with them. I have a lot more fun not always worrying about where I set down expensive gear. I am glad there are people like you that don't mind packing all that stuff around lol.

    Its getting to me.. With the big white lens and the full frame Digital (neither on this trip) it weights over 7lbs.. The last few things I have done seriously (Wedding and 3 concerts) gave me some serious elbow and wrist pain.. But hell.. For now it is still within the realm of acceptable..

    On this trip I have my trusty a700 (4 yrs old in Feb) and the 18 - 80 Ziess ( Bought used in 2008 as well) .. We also got a real cool Sony NEX-3 with us on this trip. It has the same size sensor as the DSLRs but in a small body.. It has been a hoot to use since I picked it open box special in March..

    Big Whitey lens is almost 3lbs so I left it home, mostly because I got an old Minolta f4 70-210 for $75 in Nov and it does 70% of what big whitey does at 1/3 the weight..

    They used to have the best upper deck to hang out on, before all the bad stuff. What a waste.
