Drugs, Smokes, Alcohol, Sin
I am loving Spain - at least the Canaries where the VAT is half what it is on the mainland. Today I went shopping:
Prescription Drugs: 20% of the cost in the US, no prescription required for refills of my heart and cloistral meds.
Smokes: $30 per carton
Johnny Walker Black: $30 per 5th
Decent wine: $6.00
Captain Morgan Black Jamaican Rum: $10
Sin: Prostitution is legal in Spain. I do not have, nor do I intend to have, any experience in this area.
Fair winds and following seas
