re: Medallion Signature Guarantee or Signature Guarantee? - lagniappe14 on 6/16/19 at 11:37 pm
Your local bank can do it. The Medallion stamp is like a notary stamp except done by a banking institution. You have to show proof of ID, and you may have to sit and chat for a couple of minutes with the bank representative. However, it is free as long as you bank there. If not, there might be a n...

re: Beer drinkers...what beers have you had that are most similar to Jucifer? - lagniappe14 on 5/29/19 at 2:15 pm
As a lurker FBD fan, I tried Ghost in the Machine, and it tasted mostly like grapefruit. While it tasted fine, I didn't think it was quite worthy of the hype. Jucifer was better IMO. I also liked Nola's Lemon Basil (from a can). BTW, any recommendations for any Pecan beers?...

re: London and Edinburgh recommendations - outside of typical? - lagniappe14 on 5/21/19 at 10:48 pm
Walk the closes in Edinburgh. At night, you will feel like you are back in time. Pop into any local pub you happen upon. It might be a hole-in-wall full of locals serving hearty fare and dishing out sass. Scotch Whiskey museum is memorable for a couple of reasons for which I shall not spoil. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

re: Argentine Peso - lagniappe14 on 5/21/19 at 10:23 pm
Credit cards are readily accepted. I only used US cash in Mendoza. The sommelier/tour guide and a taxi driver we hired for the Andes trip both wanted US cash. The exchange rate was 40 pesos to the dollar when I was there. I received 38 pesos per dollar at the blue market. The guy who made t...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

After the fact, I realized I was lucky nothing happened to me as I exchanged money on the blue market. The outdoor mall was deserted due to the hour. Not so smart. Then, I felt like a bad arse because normally I'd never do something like that. US Dollars are definitely preferred by those in t...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Easter Island. :) I made a friend on the flight over to Easter Island who loved Valparaiso. There are tours that will take you there and stop at a winery on the way back. You can also take the train and spend the day at your leisure. From Mendoza, I traveled to see Aconcacua, highest mountain ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

I liked Santiago. Very clean city, friendly people, tasty food, great museums, Andes, wineries, and the beach within a day's drive. Tip: stay in a hip neighborhood. It is livelier and has more to do. Lastarria, Bellavista, and Provendicia were my favorites. I stayed at The Castillo Rojo in Bel...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

Due the currency instability, you will not be able to get Argentine Pesos at a bank here in the US. You could try a currency dealer. However, I recommend waiting until you land in Buenos Aires. At the airport, there is a currency exchange. Turn 180 degrees to the right immediately after comi...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

La Mina is still closed. Bring good, non-slippery shoes for caving and hiking....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Check out the caves around Arecibo. One has a great view; another has an underground river that you can hear roaring nearby. Also, you can grab a bite to eat from the roadside vendors. Coconut mojitos (or your beverage of choice) hit the spot after a long day in the sun. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

Crawdaddy, your hotel isn't far from the new Wharf area. I'd recommend checking it out. Navy Yards also isn't far; however, use caution at night if walking in the area beyond the centers of activity. You are staying in a great location for daytime sightseeing. At night, it will be dead because i...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Circulator has several routes along the most popular corridors. Union Station to Georgetown; Rosslyn to Dupont via Georgetown; National Mall; Woodley Park (Zoo) and more.
