In our latest mail delivery I received a check from the IRS for over payment, It was a welcome surprise. I took it, and another refund check I received from my former alarm monitoring company, to CI Banco to deposit into our new account. Interestingly, they told me I couldn’t deposit either check. The bank manager said they wouldn’t accept checks from the U.S. Treasury. I was so surprised since those checks are treated like gold in the U.S. that I failed to ask him why. They would have accepted the check from the alarm company had it been for at least $500.
Today I went to Lupita’s Salon (another Lupita, not our cleaning lady) for a haircut and a color touch up. Lupita’s English isn’t great, and my Spanish is pathetic so it was a bit of a challenge to communicate. She did a good job, I’m pretty happy with the results. It was about $23 for color and a haircut.
Don went snorkeling again this morning. He is getting better with his underwater camera.
