The hospitality was wonderful here; after we'd been ripped off (sad to admit) by taxi drivers who stole our information from the real don carlos shuttle and claimed to be them (DC offers a shuttle from the airport to hotel for a reasonable price), the manager actually took that amount of money off of our bill since he felt bad for us and for some reason even seemed to give us a discount on the stay.

... well overdue. A little white lie never hurt anyone : ) They agreed it was a pig sty and also knew that without the 'garage' life would be pretty boring in this neighbourhood. After negotiating co-operation, I came back with 3 garbage bags, 4 brooms and buckets. In an hour we had made a huge impact and it looks so much better. One of the boys tried to sneak away so I asked him 'Do you play here?' to which he answered 'Si' and so I said ...
