Best Weather Predictor


The ATM on the Malecon, owned by Intercam, is our best weather predictor. Just pick your face up off the bar in Solomon’s and glance out at the machine. If it’s trussed up in black garbage bags, it’s going to rain.

And be careful using it, it’s very expensive. Squint hard and read every screen because if you rush through it you will be agreeing to pay a lot of commission.

And just why would you be looking for dollars anyway? You get a bad exchange rate nearly everywhere, and it’s very hard to know when you’re getting shortchanged when you’re dealing in two currencies. Find an ATM, preferably associated with a bank, that will give you better odds than the Cashola machine.
