After I got done yelling about the cost of the call to tell me this, she was very insulted, she thought that this was important for me to know!

Years ago, when she was with us, she would sneak phone calls home from our room at LaCabana. Charges on my AMEX would be $186 and up!

This year we are renting a phone for the week!

PS - what are black phones at LaCabana? I didn't know about them!
OK now you have me cracking up.....I told the kids that the phones in the room didn't work for the US so they never tried...TG!!!

The black phones were the ones down by the elevators that you could by the Ventaha cards and use them there! Only they took them out some time ago to force us to use the room phones!!! Well they are back. Last November Steven Jr. went to the PBV's and AM to try to call his girlfriend and none of their phones worked with the card either! They are apparently special phones you need to look for. All others are direct dial or maybe credit card calls...who knows!
