I jogged up to the molinito today and the roadblock was gone. I don't know the story. the truckers could have given up; there may have been a negotiation; or the government could have sent police and/or military force to break it up. if that was the case, then it's far from over.

getting the banks to hand out 10 peso coins is like pulling teeth, but today I pulled 500 pesos worth. maybe going early is key.

I can see why they don't like handing them out. they probably don't get issued very many because they're no doubt expensive to make. and I'm sure they don't want people hoarding them, which in fact is my intent, but it never works out that way. I always end up spending them when my income isn't coming in fast enough.
