there. I used to carry Canadian or Euros but right now I just carry dollars when I travel there for work. No plastic works from US banks, that is correct Dulcesuenos, and a huge pain. Have to carry way more cash than I like.
Getting a generator
? sheesh. Cuba is not the place you want to be when you want to buy equipment
. I'll be very curious to hear about generator shopping
. Are you talking to them on a Sat phone
? They are not allowed for the typical visitor, prolly want to keep that on the boat.
Hope they have a chance to see Havana some.
