    Dry Cleaner Viveza Criolla

    So it appears that my dry cleaner has been conveniently ‘losing’ some of the clothing (none of the cheaper, more generic stuff, go figure!) I have hurriedly been dropping off and picking up without bothering to check the ticket. It’s not that I have a massive amount of clothes and didn’t...

    Looking For Place/Roommate

    Hello! After a few months of living alone in an Air BNB apartment, I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s starting to get expensive, and my lifestyle is not conducive at the moment to really need my own place (I am never home, never cook, and use my apartment for the bare basics) so I am seeking...
