    Am trying to expose myself! Interestingly most of the review sites all want money - and there are hundreds of them. But little by little. I hope you enjoy the rest of the book - thanks for buying it.

    I have to say that I honestly admire you, Matilda. I can't imagine anyone going through everything you went through and still loving this country.
    The things I love about the country haven't changed and I was never going to let a few bad apples make me leave. The landscape and the weather are glorious, and in the most part the people are amazing. I now live way up in the mountains in a tiny campo and have the best of the scenery, the weather and the people. I honestly can't think of a better place in the world to live. Thanks for buying the book!

She says that the only serious friendship that she's looking forward to developing is the one with you (: Stay tuned, as we will, and keep up the good work.
    Would love to be friends with your wife! Tell her to escape from her tent and come and see me in the mountains.

    I loved the book. I especially enjoyed the anecdote about the kids selling one avocado for five pesos or two for fifteen.

    I don't understand the trust you placed in the Dominican political process. Not one little bit. But I trust you're cured of that by now.

    To your new simple life enjoying the best parts of RD.

    i am happy to say that i successfully importuned two of my visiting friends to buy a copy of the book, using a real simple gambit, to wit; lending them my copy for half an hour, each, then refusing to promise to lend them when i am done reading it.. that sent them into the clutches of Amazon.
