    Pesos in Uruguay

    Do the math. By the time you pay for Barquebus and use a full day of yor time, you better have a high limit! Then you need a trusted connection so not to deal with guys on the street. Xoom sounds more appealing. Don't knw what their giving now but we're looking at 6.4 this week.

    Storm? Let's say tsunami. Foreign direct investment? Let's consider YPF. The Europeans will do limited business with AR. Let's consider unrepaid legal judgements to American companies.

    Money and taxi from the Airport.
