Today, Chris and I went with my dad to El Triunfo. It’s about an hour south and an old mining town, hence the big smoke stack. My dad was kind enough to buy us lunch porque no tenemos dinero!
We opened a Schwab checking account because there are no ATM fees, which is an important feature when you are traveling abroad and need to use the ATM frequently. Unfortunately, the downside of Schwab is when you transfer money into the account they hold it for three whole business days. THREE! And since we transferred money last Friday and Monday was Columbus day, we’re still waiting. It’s not that bad — we have our Chase ATM cards as back-up in case our Schwab ones got lost or stolen. I’m mostly frustrated based on principle. How inconvenient.
