Awesome Canuck! I've got Canadian cash in my bag just to go to Pineapple Petes! It's so nice when businesses go the extra mile for their customers, it's appreciated for sure! 22 hours till we land on SXM!

I am headed to the bank in a little while to order US cash. I think I may have to take a valium first.

Right now RBC shows 1.4354 for 1 US$. I've seen worse.

For the difference of 0.2%, I'll go to the bank on the corner.

I found the prices at the grocery stores to be fairly decent! We cooked dinner in the condo four times in two weeks, and purchased breakfast and lunch items as well. Didn't keep track of specific amount spent, but I came home with money and that never happens! Our taxi driver Jackie was nice enough to stop on the way to condo for us to get food at the Store beside Princess casino (think it was Carrefour) and it was reasonable. The Simply U in Hope Estate had nice meat, didn't much care for the tetra pack milk though. Once our supplies dwindled, we just bought daily from our Chinese grocery on the corner. Two bottles of wine, bananas and a six pack of water for less than twenty bucks smile

I was supposed to pick up my USD today after ordering it on Monday. Busy today and doing it tomorrow, and the loonie is trending a couple of cents to the good. A tiny respite, but a respite nonetheless.
