    Today, I decided to approach the colmado owner around the corner, real nicely and respectfully. I gave him my Meeting schedules and he nicely turned off the music. It's far better than calling the police.

    absolutely correct. when you are living in someone else's country, those people resent it when you call the police on them. i would, too.

    For those that don't mind ear plugs, Macks Ultra Soft foam ear plugs do a good job of blocking out moderate levels of noise. Flesh colored and very comfortable compared to others I've tried. Pack of 50 for $8.54 USD on Amazon. They can make even ear splitting levels of music very tolerable. High noise reduction rating: -32 dB.

    i was once asked to be a judge at a car stereo contest in POP. i had thought that each car would take turns, and the merits of each system could be judged, individually. no such luck. it was just a free for all, everyone playing at the same time, and the loudest system was declared the winner.

    forget moving, because at least twice per week some guy is going to drive past your house at 4am with seismic rumbling from his car stereo. he does not even live in your neighborhood.
    Just because YOU say it................ does not make YOUR onion true or near correct. We are NOT in Jamaica. We are in the Dominican Republic. Get over it.

    DR Solar, you need help. get some couch time. a grown man should not follow people around an internet forum. it is unhealthy.

    people, this guy DR Solar is the guy who, YESTERDAY at 7pm , gave me a dislike for a posting i made last year. a poster commented on the effects of the rain, and asked when the rains would end. i responded that it was the caribbean rainy season, and the rain would not end that week.

    for that, he gave me a dislike. the guy is not well.

    Yeah, those roosters will drive you crazy. They just don't crow when the sun comes up, they crow all the time! I guess if you've grown up around them you don't notice. The ear plugs I mentioned will block them out completely. They solve a lot of noise problems.
