At the end of November, Manoel Magalhães inked the fifteenth page of The Three Princes, signaling the halfway point of our project and cuing me to pay him. As agreed to in our terms, I paid Manoel half of the agreed to amount upon the completion of the first fifteen pages. We had decided to use xoom.com to transact. I am happy to report the service was easy to use and that Manoel received his money in less than a week. I’d recommend xoom.com to anyone needing to send money to somone in Brazil.
