I've read that due to the embargo they haven't been able to get new cars or car parts.

To some extent that's probably true. Although they do have many many russian cars, especially from the 80s. And I think they had some new buses from China or something.

The embargo mainly has an effect on what they can get from the US, so parts, if they are around in the US would be hard to get. The AC in the hall we rented was broken, waiting on a piece from the US, they expected to wait at least another few months till it would be fixed...

Actually, I'm dreading scanning them, too long..
Anyone have any suggestions to do this on mobile?
Example: The ideal way to do this would be to take a pic of them from my cell and share it. Something as easy as sharing on whatsapp where I can share in bulk, but even one by one (for the ones that need captions) will be faster than scanning, saving, attaching.
You can take pics of them with your phone then multi select the photos and upload them to imageshack (Android app) all at once.

Weird, when searching for imageshack I get all different results for similar apps (image related) but no Imageshack.
Upon clicking on your link I get "item not found" and a retry button..

Looks like my phone might have an aversion to that app LOL.

Avianca...
A little cheaper but you have to route through BOG.
I'd rather spend an extra $100 to fly via YYZ.
