No problem. I live in Curacao, Netherlands Antilles. It's about as far south as you can go in the Caribbean before running into Venezuela. Great place to live and great place for vacation as well.
Here is the Google Maps satellite photo.
nope, the way you bleed it is turn the car on, have the heat full blast, and there is a tiny plastic screw near the radiator filling area, you just remove that, its very short, and you rev the engine, up down up down until fluid comes out of that little hole, first it will be nothing, then bubbles, then when you get a steady stream turn the car off and put the screw in
