Books at Walmart?

I love to read (lots) of novels while on vacation but with this trip lasting a month, I am not inclined to pack so many. Do they have the latest paperbacks (like you would find in the US) in english? This is my 4th trip to PV but I have never been to the Sam's Club or Walmart while there. Thanks for...

Re:Bug Repellent??

Consider bringing an ammonia pen if you are going swimming in the ocean. I never worried about it, but this recent trip was stung badly all over leg and arm by a jellyfish. Likely was just a fluke, as there were no warnings from resort staff, nor had any washed ashore.

Re:Last few days weather

I just came back on Tuesday night after spending 2 weeks. Mornings and most evenings had light to heavy clouds in the mountains. Only one day was it cloudy near the ocean. (But NO RAIN!) It was still quite nice. Still spent day at pool and got plenty of suntan that day. The one cloudy day was a reli...

Mogens,
I like it just the way it is. Thanks so very much for being the "mover" and giving us the different views that you now do. I realize it takes time out of you day, and may be quite expensive to enlarge - just wanted to say thank you for what you give us now.
