With the improved weather, the opportunities to make money have improved considerably, and the interviewed workers said they expect more sunny days than rainy days in upcoming weeks.

, with a five percent increase yearly, a partir del 2000 "hasta la fecha" from 2000 "until the date".
It is estimated that the city treasury should be receiving about 500,000 pesos monthly. He said clause 14 of this document says it can only be amended by an express agreement in writing between the City and the bank (Banamex) and the trustee (Prmotora Xel-ha).
He said considering the dollar is trading at over 13 pesos, this should be more than 40,000 dollars monthly. It is estimated by former officials who know about the subject, that via this contract, from Garrafon the City should be gaining ~5 million pesos this year, but nothing is known about this issue. (If the peso is at 13p/dollar, then 16,000 dollars is 208,000 pesos, and 500,000 pesos would be ~38,500 dollars. Five million pesos is about 385,000 dollars.)
Taxi rate hike confirmed

I am not sure of the exact meaning, but translated literally he says....."On this side, the drivers "achieve their extras" in an irregular way, but this does not appear in the tab/tabulations that are contemplated about this".
Other routes, such as to Garrafon, Punta Sur, and Sac Bajo, among others, are more than 70 pesos currently, even for local laborers, but there is no alternative means of transport for them if they work in these areas. Some drivers anticipate another increase later in the year, due to increases in VAT and gasoline prices.

Daily Update: We are in Cancun this week doing a big spay and neuter clinic with Vidas, an incredible group of vets out of Colorado who have worked in Mexico for years. I am reminded as we set this clinic up how lucky we are to have such experienced and wonderful people who make all of this happen. Animalistas, a rescue in Cancun does a huge amount of work, starting months before the event and we could never do this without Nelly who owns Storm Catchers in Cancun and brings in equipment, people and a totally positive attitude. I love this picture. These people waited patiently in the shade with their momma dog and pups until it was their turn. How cute is that pup?Like · · Share ·
Daily Update: I'm in heaven. Surrounded by dogs and dedicated doggy people. We have done 297 cats and dogs so far, how wonderful is that. I'm always amazed what people will do to get their animals to us. This guy biked for miles to bring in his dog and two cats. In case you haven't seen one, there is a bicycle on the back of this and people use them to get around.Unlike · ·
