La Gringa has a bad day

La Gringa is having a really bad day today...
Umm, and yesterday....
Oh, and the day before, too.

Lucky for you readers that I had some happy articles drafted up from last week which were displaced by Hurricane Felix.

I'm beginning to think that I don't much like gringos. I thought I came here to get away from all that stuff. Any of you other expatriates ever feel that way?

Oh, and you Hondurans, too. Feel free to jump in and tell us how pushy and obnoxious gringos are. (Me included.)

* "The Ugly American was a caricature built on the reality of a boisterous, loud, uncultured, unsophisticated, arrogant, insensitive clod − one who was prone to throwing around too much money, dressing absurdly, and acting oblivious to the subtleties of high culture."
