    BOLA BOAT RATES MIGHT GO UP

    Cangrejos has better freezers and better processing and a nice new boat, so maybe the hike is justified... but if I show up for higher prices and the quality goes down, that’s when I start getting curious. and for sure, towing looks better and better.

I have been asked for my visa at a variety of military checks, or at least, for my “papers” which I take...
