    Anyone flown with their cat or small dog in the cabin on Delta? Do they actually measure the carrier? I confirmed with Delta before buying my ticket on the size of the kennel but when I called today, they told me a different (really small) size. I can order another carrier bag and have it...

    Paying At Pago-Facil, Etc With Credit Card?

    This is a silly question but I honestly have no idea. Can you pay with your credit card at a rapi-pago, pago-facil, etc? Or do they only accept cash? Or does it depend on what kind of bill you're paying?

    Out of curiosity - what are you guys paying for a kilo of tomatoes? I went today and they were 37 pesos a kilo. :eek: Last week they were 24. The lady told me there was a shortage. Anyway, I was curious what prices are in your neighborhoods (and please sure what neighborhood).
