One last note before signing off for the summer….
Tonight I went with a friend to get our nails done- Graduation tomorrow. We tried this new salon “liz salon” in Plaza Central (mall). I got a mediocre mani and pedi but I thought oh well how much can it be…$450RD/ EACH (that’s $12.50 each) which is A LOT for here. Last time I got mani, pedi, and hair washed and styled for $500RD ($14). So anyways… after the mediocre mani y pedi I got a 30 minute massage, it was heavenly! Well worth the $500RD.
So let me back up… as I was finishing with my Pedicure I gave the lady my sandals. Instead of putting them on me she tried them on her self- I thought something must have gotten lost in translation but then I repeated my self and I thought she understood. I ended up leaving the room with those throw away flip flops and headed to my massage. After the massage I came down- they were closing- and I asked for my zapatos. They looked at me weird and said where did you leave them.. I said with the pedicure lady. Well the pedicure lady had left and my shoes were no where in sight. We spent about a half hour looking for them (everywhere including a lady’s lunch box). In the end I walked out in the throwaway flip flops and got all services for free… I’m still very disappointed about my shoes.
I’m pretty sure the pedicure lady stole them- she tried them on… that was weird!
(Andrea SIL- I can only image what you would have done if you A) Spoke Spanish and B) Had this happen to you!)
