    Dear Consular Wardens,

    I hope you are all doing well.

    I just wanted to touch base with you regarding the political situation in Honduras. We are not aware of any overt violence here in Nicaragua associated with events in Honduras. If you here otherwise, could you let me know via email or phone (8867-5658)?

    We are continuing to receive reports regarding U.S. citizens who are kidnapped and robbed in taxis after sharing rides with strangers who have befriended them while traveling on a bus (warden message attached). Anything you can do to help us spread the word about this scam would be much appreciated. As this scam has primarily affected U.S. citizens traveling through Rivas, Granada and Leon, we have asked the wardens there specifically to help us post this information in hostels, hotels, etc.

    Thanks again for the outstanding service you provide to the Embassy and your fellow Americans.

    In Managua, I have ridden with this cab driver in his nearly new cab with air conditioning that really works. He is not the cheapest but speaks really good English. He also looks for work as a translator, tour guide. His name and telephone number is Guillermo Cuadra, 8679-2640. He works from around Metro Centro.

    The real issue with me, is safety. Here in San Juan del Sur, I feel comfortable with our taxies. But in Managua, where I only go maybe once a month, I either drive or have a Pelican Eyes driver but occasionally, I go with someone else and need to do other running around. The busses work really well and I have always been treated well, if you have the time to use them. But sometimes, I want to go now and get there not much later, then comes the use of a taxi. I know several people that have been robbed and even stabbed during taxi rides. (I just reread this post and can't believe the bad English, but I am to lazy to write it again.)

    Again I will say that I have never been treated better by a most professional, courteous English Speaking driver than El Doc's recommended driver Francisco (648-2925).

    Politically, I secretly believe that he is a lefty, cause he will agree with you the whole of the way without argument.

    Actually I'm not sure. I tested that theory and he seems to agree no matter what you say.

    He's a wealth of information though and very punctual.

    He gave a second opinion. Aren't doctors supposed to do that?

    No, I meant no matter if you argue a left position or a right position, he seems to agree.

    His dad was killed in the civil war, but I don't know for which side.

    Checking my log, calculating the drag and drift, it is my estimate, that on the fuel that I consume, we should be somewhat in concurrence on the port to which I landed?

    Anyway, he's a cool guy and very efficient. I recommend anyone give him a call if they need a pickup at the airport or a ride to SJDS. He can also give you a nice guided tour of the capital.
