    Default Santo Domingo Circa 1956

    This was posted to Facebook today, an image of the Embajador Hotel in 1956. Nothing but empty land around it.

    Anyone remember the Teatro Agua Luz on the Malecon in SD? We spent a New Year's Eve there, dancing under the stars for hours. Photo from 1955

    you can view them even if you do not have FB but may need to fill a captcha to enter because FB is a piece of manure.

    This reminds me of this video of Casandra Damirón.

    Their posts on FB are always entertaining. More than once I've gone off on a googling tangent after seeing a picture or two.

    For some reason this place and the fountain on the Malecon and Maximo Gomez are always of interest to me. I'd love to see the plans for Agua y Luz work out.

    I could be wrong, but I think Miguel is the owner of the construction company that wants to rent and rehabilitate it.

    Some folks aren't too happy about it.

    But then again, those plans include a big hotel complex, so it's certainly possible he did get it.

    The guy has more money that the govt. thanks to his past dealings and his patrimony.
