While it is stressful to run down T/C and Reg Corp, it is worth it in the end if you have to sell, or take out a second mortgage.

Re: Covid Testing in Trinidad

Sorry...private testing costs are just too high. IMO, the testing should be ramped up publicly.

This also brings to mind the issue of private vaccinations and the cost.
