OK, I need to watch for the cold fronts. It's a foregone conclusion I'm "better off" there, particularly after last winter, the coldest on record (amid global warming?). I grew up in Panama as a kid and even here it's too cold for me in the winter so I'll plan on having something warm just in case.
Next question: we wanted to stay 2 weeks, not just the week of JJW. How do you handle the cash situation? Travelers checks? Or, are there debit/credit cash machines available? I've read some about this here but I don't really get a good sense of how to handle it, particularly for that long.
So, anybody, any advice?
