I feel some what sorry for the ill informed and ignorant people of the world who spout crap without knowing the facts. Speaking for some of the hill people, when we filled out pool, it was done so by trucking each and every liter from Melaque and each time we run low on water again it is trucked in from Melaque at a cost of 900 pesos per load. That is my first point, second point, we pay twice the normal water charge just for having a pool. We accepted this when we build our home using local labor and materials. We support the community in a wide variety of means which include providing food to several families who are less fortunate. Why I explain this, and it is certainly not to praise myself but to point out that many of those hill side people do support the community. Although I somewhat question some of the local policies and politics, I don't sit and criticize them as this community has operated as it does for many years and we are only guests in their community. Should the elders of the community feel that there are abuses by expats, it is up to them to speak up. As I have never seen you weigh in on any subject prior to water issue, I am assuming that you are a foreigner who is just a critic regardless of the facts. Have you never heard that if you have nothing constructive to say, but out. I think your comments have been unwarranted and unfounded, and most importantly totally unappreciated.
That is my two cents for what it is worth
