    Default Sosua Ahead

    The new Mayor, (alcantera) is doing some new things.
    You can't miss the roads being fixed, the trash being cleaned, the weeds and trees being chopped, the chicas being picked up, the street boys being fewer, the money changers going amiss, the corner food sellers gone. They're talking about closing off the street views of the discos. Closing them in, but not down.
    Did I mention the jogging path between El Batey Sosua and Charamicos, and the new lights about town?
    This woman has a vision.
    It will be an uphill battle.
    I salute her, thus far.
    Muy buena suerte Ilana.

    Excellent work and I agree, because if I want BBQ chicken I go to Charamicos which is only a hop skip and a jump from Sosua!

    Trash being picked - yes
    Weeds and trees - half and half with CDE
    Food sellers / There are less (At least tonight) Let's wait untill the weekend
    Chicas / Arrested everyone for a few days but tonight it looks like a go (Thank goodness)
    Money changers / Dunno
    Muy buena suerte Ilana / I agree

    Why should the discos be enclosed? People like to have a beer listen to music and look at good looking women in the beautiful weather of DR. If you dont like the music, the beers or the women stay inside your little gated in community and go play with yourself, Let the rest of us have some fun.

    Default Conclusions

    You've jumped to a lot of conclusions there.

    i noticed the litter was twice as bad after they picked it all up and cut the grass around by the old carwash as you could now see everything thats dumped one day later - so its a losing battle unless they start doing free garbage collection

    The woman has only been in office since August and reportedly the financial coffers are bare, yet there are already signs that efforts are being made to improve the town.

    She will be the mayor for 6 years and based on performance in the first days there is reason to believe that at the end of the term that Sosua is a better place.

    Well said!

    This area is no more than a couple of hundred yards!!! In trying to "fix" Sosua, make sure you do not destroy it.
