    Those are the best times to be out!! For younger people out there really it is not nearly as scary as some would say on here.
    My experience would be 4 years of being out at those times 5 nights a week....
    Some very scared people seem to live here.

    There is a lot of fun to be had with Dominicans and/or expats late at night throughout the country and there's nothing excessively dangerous with being out until whatever hour of the night in DR*

    *dependent on where you are, who you're with, what you are doing, the area you have to go home to, your method of transportation to get there, and your level of sobriety/common sense.

    Since I did not spell it correctly I think that was actually not that violent.. . There is always a need to be very careful in the DR but I agree with some others that it is not healthy or at least not fun to just stay in after 10 PM every night.

    Mitt means center in another language

    Not sure, but I think the cops made an arrest today. Not that I expect to get the phone back. These guys were out all night apparently. The moto had a plate on it that I couldn't read in time. Maybe someone else saw it.

    Actually any particular area has had nothing to do with this, we've lived in various places in POP as well as in SDQ. I may have put it slightly strongly, but the point is just to pay proper attention to your surroundings, and the fact that the delinquentes can move fast, and most likely don't mind to kill you for 100 pesos worth of property, as they have nothing to lose...

    I can understand you on your second point, but again, I disagree on this point. I believe there's much less an expat can do in issues between Dominicans than a Dominican, much less on non-usual hours on the street and on motoconcho.

    If it was my home country we were talking about, my opinion would obviously be the contrary, as I was raised to help anyone in need anywhere. Unfortunately things from 1st world countries are not always fully valid in 3rd world countries... Just IMO.

    It is worth my time to help people! I'm not scared of the punks here. Dominicana's now that is another story!

    Cool mugged, but unharmed

    dia de reyes wife and I were going to visit friends. It's a beautiful afternoon around 6 pm in SD.

    As we are approaching the building, a well dressed Chinese man gets out of he lobby

    and goes to his car parked on the side of the building.

    A motorconcha comes out of nowhere, they go at the Chinese man to rob him,

    he runs away.

    They drive away, and come back from the other side of the block to encircle him again.

    He runs into another building.*

    From a distance, gun shots go off.

    The robbers get scared and drive away.

    Another day in "Paradise".

So if it's not your problem, just don't pay attention to that. They deserve the life they live and we are here to enjoy our life, not to get in trouble. If your life or the life of your family or your property is in danger, then kill the fcking animals if you are armed, but if it's between them, just remember that their life doesn't cost a penny anyway.
    SDDR: I am trying to understand your mentality? You live in the country as bad as it is, yet you are completely removed from being acting what is considered to be a norm for societies around the world. If you see someone in trouble, help. Not saying that the way it was handled was the best course of action, to say turn and go the other way when a woman is screaming is pretty sad. I was born in the DR, but will not ever and I mean ever live there for the same reasons that most responses to the post suggest. Why is a Dominican life worth less than a penny? I get ****ed when I see an atrocity in Bangladesh or any contry. Its called compassion and caring about what goes on in your community. I know about the lock up at sundown and don't open until daylight. Sound like you all are in minimum security prison. No way I live like that and tried for 20 years to convince my mom to leave the sh*t hole country. Having said that, if I was a member of the community, I would get involved. Yes, I would be armed and would have shot the SOB's then just pay my way out of jail or called one of the military bigwig in the family. But I choose not to be in that environment. He should have started yelling "robo, robo" or something like that since he was not armed.
