    Default Jumbo building at POP roundabout

    If you thought driving in the POP roundabout is fun now just think how much more for it will be with Jumbo building there!

    here is article in diario libre they are referring to: El Grupo CCN abrirá cinco nuevos establecimientos en el 2015 - DiarioLibre.com
    Con la apertura de los nuevos establecimientos, los cuales estarán ubicados en La Vega, Moca, Puerto Plata, Santo Domingo y en el Este, aportarán alrededor de 700 nuevos empleos para la República Dominicana.

    my guess is they will have to put at least one more entry/exit that does not go to manolo tavarez justo.

    actually, POP is like 163,000 people. the second Jose Luis is already open. then there is La Sirena. all we need now is yet one more supermarket. we need them just as much as we need another garment store.

    don't you just love it when they make it accurate to 6 figures? one guy moves to Mao over the weekend and the figure is shot.

    the figure is shot from the get go. Maybe, possibly, ball park figures. The DR really has no idea who is in the country or where they are.

    what can i say. it's a census and each person is supposed to be accounted for. of course by the time the data was compiled and prepared people died, were born, moved in/out. but the number of those included in a censo should be, theoretically, exact.

    The number should be exact by virtue of some theoretical construct. such a notion should be abandoned, because it is impossible to achieve exactitude. i wonder why it still persists.

    then it would read the population of DR as over 50 million because you just know people would be digging the dead and propping them up like in "weekend at bernie's", just to get that free beer.

    ps don't let chic teach you how to spell "malecon" next time around.
