    Big difference between this time and last time is the remittances. Doesn't matter that they don't go to D&R, they are still dollars and eventually make their way to BCN where they can be used to buy gasoline and other stuff.

    I saw the Taiwan thing too, I struggle to see where the US sits here, and the Euros. Maybe letting the OAS process play out ??

    The lighter traffic IS really nice.

    I was in Migración Monday, the young lady went back to check on my residency, and almost immediately came back:
    "It's there, but it's not ready"
    "We'll call you "
    Today INTUR called and asked for a photo of my passport first page that showed number???

    I've been staying across the lane from the AirportX ,, the Airport Inn. Same reception, water is hotter, smaller room, very quiet,, big AC,, too big,, $15 less than X.

    Great and inexpensive pupusas in the residencia where the hotel is located.

    Those papusas are great. A friend stays at that place all the time, loves it. I stayed in Monti Christi many times, cool little neighborhood, convenient to airport. A upstairs bar/restaurant towards the main entrance, food is hit or miss but nice, quiet place.

    Remittances were up something like 25% 1st quarter, was in paper a while back.
