last friday, marjolaine of hotel vista rio went down the street in fronteras
to take care of some errands. she had her passport in a jacket pocket.
unbeknownst to the divine ms. m, the pocket had a "passport sized" hole
in the bottom. when she returned to the hotel she discovered that her
passport had fallen through the hole somewhere in town during her walk.

she was pretty upset and was dreading the trip to the embassy in the city,
not to mention the cost, hassle and time involved in getting a new
passport.

she printed up a REWARD flyer, made copies and passed them out
on the street.

within an hour, she got a call from someone who had found her passport
lying in the street.

god, i love this pueblo.

Good to hear everything worked out on that one.

Despite people who know little and say much, I have found the people of this pueblo to be very honest and trustworthy.

Good deal !! (And great idea to put out a reward poster - never hurts to be pro-active).

it was much less than passport replacement costs and yes, i believe it was
gratefully accepted.

$39.11 Canadian (approx.)
