  1. At least I know ¨Del Rey¨means ´¨of (from) the king.¨
    Most guys there think Rey is the name of the owner. Given the negotiability of pricing in Costa Rica, I would say having aggresive girls there is sort of like the cab driver who overcharged me by insisting on $8 instead of $6 for a 30 minute ride!

  2. I have concluded my trip, and have calculated I am up $9391 since inception of this journal.

    My major positions in CIC and HRP have done well.

    Costa Rica is an interesting place. Homes are not cheap in the best areas. I'm considering a mountainside home . Labor is very cheap. A maid is $200 per month full-time. Taxis are also cheap and very negotiable.Food is not cheap.

  5. My Lexus is for sale on e-bay. I need to ditch it before leaving for Central America or ....a cabin in the woods in Montana ala the Unabomber.
    I mean, it would be kind of strange to drive my sc 430 into a small town for groceries if I'm living in the woods without power.....wait....maybe I can power the cabin from the cigarette
    lighter in the car!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. Yeah, I agree....but I know that he'll be raking in the dough with the vending machine franchise for snacks!! You might try some video poker machines and a bar (heck, then I'll come over).
