WE spend the morning chatting with Sue and drinking coffee…trying to work out a way of transferring money home and seeing if there’s any way of opening a US bank account as a non-resident.
After checking things out and discussing stuff we decide the best option is to give Sue cash to pay into her bank account and then use Transferwise to send the money to us. Transferwise is the best, cheapest hassle-free way to send money internationally.
At some point we’ll find a way of getting a US bank account so we can use a card reader over here.
We head out to a local Japanese place called Gaijin for some lunch – amazing! Steamed buns with pork belly, gyoza and pork ramen. My kind of lunch 🙂
Then it’s time to hit the road and make for South Haven, a couple of hundred miles away. We’ve left it a bit late but we’re there in time to load in, set up and soundcheck for the show. It’s a great wee venue and although it; just a small crowd I have a brilliant show and play 90-minutes straight through.
We’re done by 10pm and drive 30 miles to our pals Doug and Micki’s in Kalamazoo where we’re staying. They;re also hosting tomorrow night’s house concert…Sue, Jim and a load of our Michigan pals are coming so it’s a night to look forward to!
