    My "palace" in Sosua is an honest one-bedroom with a decent kitchen and hot water, which I installed. I pay approx. RD$700 for electricity per month. I have 24/7 security. I pay RD$12,000 a month.

    Anywhere I would like to live in the US (NY, Boston) or elsewhere in the world (Paris, Israel) I couldn't EVEN come close. I can't afford to live anywhere else.

    I also LIKE living here.

    An apt for $RD 12,000 month here would be around $US 1200 in my hometown. There is a lot of room between living in the barrio and having AC, high speed internet and an SUV. Our last apt was $RD 6000/month with tile floors, a cistern, and electric except during business hours. Our next place is new construction with 24hr electric, cable included for $RD 8000 and we're renting our casita for $RD 3000, so 5000 net.
