Publico by Luna McCarthy

One of the things I really appreciate here in Xela, is the fact that there are lots of coin operated publicos (pay phones) all around the city. In many, many countries all around the world that have pay phones, there are only “tarjeta” phones, NOT coin operated phones. As a traveler or someone new to the area, it seems challenging to figure out a pay phone that works only on prepaid cards, especially in a potential emergency. I remember traveling in Serbia and finding only “card” public phones and being utterly confused…and unable to make a call. Thanks Xela for the coin operated pay phones. Now, just a few more garbage cans around the city and we’ll be all set!
