Please excuse my bad english, but I am Austrian and natural german speaker. Visit my home page, you will see that my branch is more related with chucrute e smoked fish, but I am living in Manaus and know the real situation here. Because of the world cup this year and the strong Real currency we have less travellers and it is a survival question for everybody even for a legal agency which has to pay workers, office rent, tax, marketing ...
It is rational that some workers guess that they earn few money. Buisness is not easy for nobody at Brazil.
No, I won't. Really, the whole point of the page this came from, Wikitravel:Plunge forward, is that people need to change the pages themselves. If you think that this listing needs to be in the page, please just add it back. --Evan 17:45, 6 July 2006 (EDT)
Robert, it sounds like you have a good point and that anonymous person's information was incorrect. Please, change the article yourself. If they come back and have some more to say on the matter, they can post it here. Please don't insist that I, Evan, must edit the page. You can do it yourself perfectly well. --Evan 11:55, 12 July 2006 (EDT)
