    I certainly didn't find it cheap...
    And I stayed with my daughter.... free room.
    I felt poor in Naples in Florida. Beautiful villas. BMW or Merc so obvious...

    I was 5x in Santo Domingo from October 2016 to June 2017 (in average 2 weeks stays).
    ALso went to all inclusive.
    In AI you cannot really interact with locals living in golden cage.

    That was in my opinion (putting in SD) the best decission. I was thinking about subforum "living" but i didn't live really in SD.

    Dear folks,

    i really didn't come here to troll or irritate someone.
    I just try to use arguments and arguing in the best way i can.

    I don't like opinions without any evidence and background. I always try to be fair.

    At the end it was worth to start this "war" and put effort.
    I confirm some of my thesis, other not.
    Its a process. I simply like to understand and don't think that my current understanding is final one. Every one of us is evaluating, also through discussion and exchanging point of views.

    The only arguments which really hits me, was the expression, that someone likes the dominican freedom (giving few pesos to achive goals, feeling good in kind of anarchy).
    I'm not like that. Mentally i'm an old conservative. I like quite, clean, organized and respecting the rules.
    DR was first country in my life which is not so developed like Europe or USA, perhaps this is my "problem".

    I had a talk last Wednesday with my coworker who took sabatical and went to Costa Rica. He bought 40 hectars of ground and wanted to save rainforest (beat that ). His experience is simliar to mine. He came back disappointed after 9 months.

    So i think it is important what is your mindset. What do you like, what are no-GOs and values which cannot be skipped.

    Thank you for all the positive and negative reactions. For sure they took me a bit further.
