    Ross Banter

    Since most of the other forums have a banter thread I figured, hey why not the Ross forum. This is a place to just talk about non school related stuff, but as with everything else it MUST REMAIN CLEAN. If people abuse it then the thread will be promptly locked. I hope everyone enjoys.

    however, good drinks are harder to come by. I wouldn't set my heart on Mojito. I don't know 1 place that actually had mint leaves for that (to make it properly) mayyyyyybe (long shot) some place has Mojito mix idk. But yes plenty of drinks to be had.

    am i the only one who feels bad when they use an american credit card at the local restaurants/etc here? I have no idea what sort of fee the owners get charged... but I do like to use my credit card when I'm trying to save some of my EC for other things...

    Although I left the Rock in May 2010, my experience was thatmost places add a service charge to the bill when using the credit card. When you see the exchange rate that you arecharged when you get the monthly statement, you will know you are getting itfrom both sides.

    Consider using a Debit card for the local bank. (Or ask if they give a cash discount.)

    I noticed a charge but that 3% was my banks charge for using CC out of country. Some banks don't charge extra for "conversion" of currency but others do. I have Chase.

    Is it true that people straight up leave Ross because the island is too unbearable?

    For some people that is an excuse they give, but really they probably took mini 1 and freaked. I don't know how unbearable it is now that it is so much more developed than just 3 years ago. (Think rituals, kfc, subway, iga, etc).

    I love mojitos. I got a decent one at Red Rock with real mint leaves (although dried). That's one of the few places on the island I miss.

    It's not unbearable by any means. However, if you're used to getting chauffeur'ed and waited on 24/7, I'd look elsewhere

    I've heard stories that some people leave the island because they can't adjust to life there but honestly I think it's more about what fewl said - people get there and freak out because they didn't fully understand what they were getting themselves into. I've yet to get to the island but it seems like there have been good improvements. I've spoken to people who were on the island 1999-2001 and in comparison to that it sounds like heaven now
