Still no internet.
Kevin and I decided to go into San Marcos to open a bank account at the National Bank, which is a much larger bank than the cooperative. We've been told they can to wire transfers, which is what we need to bring our money from Canada to Costa Rica. Well, as I've stated before, nothing is simple here. The bureaucracy can be quite funny if you can stand back and see it as an onlooker. While sitting in the chair, however, trying to explain what we need, is tedious and frustrating, but someone always comes to the rescue. The teller went to get someone who can speak English. Vanessa introduced herself and made the process much easier. She looked over all our documentation and she was pleased to see we were so prepared; however, we needed to get all of them signed by a notary public up the street. Of course, the 4 signatures that we already have aren't enough, we need one more to seal the deal. She kindly drew a map of where we needed to go and off we went.
