Upgrade Completed; But still a work in progress!

Hello travelers!

As you can see, we upgraded our forums on Wednesday Oct 15th. We're back up and running, but we are still a work in progress! We'll be renaming things and creating an all around better experience. In the meantime, you can use the forums (the functionality is extremely similar to what you are used to). We hope to be finished tweaking things very shortly. Thank you for your patience; it is appreciated!

    Re: Blending in with the Locals

    My mother in law would have benefited from this article. She visited us recently in Tegucigalpa, Honduras and wore a fanny pack, spoke English to the locals (and wondered why they didn't understand her) took pictures of everyone she saw on the street, and was shocked to hear the US dollar is not accepted as currency. Needless to say, we were mortified.
