It is strange to be around foreigners that like the USA, there is no fashion of the day to speak bad of the USA.
I was laughing though when I asked an American where a Walmart was, he said he did not go to Walmart, however he told me about TJ Max.
Everyone has a personal vendetta, I personally do not like some of the comments in Lonely Planet, however I do buy and use the book because it serves an very important need. I do not try to hurt myself to prove a point. Walmart is cheap, and I like cheap.
Yes, great news, I found there is a beach close to the Hostel, plus they are giving me the second Passport.
