    Riva_31 waiting to hear back from you......................
    The biggest and best Carnaval parade in RD is not in Santo Domingo. It takes place in La Vega. Number one hands down. Ask any Dominican.

    Oh i don't doubt you but the one in SD is so much easier, especially if hotel accommodations are needed.

    Like EVERYTHING else in this country, carnival is a substandard mess. 2 years ago I believe one group dressed as the KKK. Never short on ignorance are these Dominicans. Go to Brasil or Trinidad if you want to see a real carnival. Unless you have kids I see no reason for an educated adult to waste time witnessing this cluster phuck.

    That is what we have and makes us diferent than other and we really enjoy, you can be part of the party and not be seatted far away watching.

    The carnival in SD will have the best of every city here, I enjoy a lot every time I go.

    When was this, any link from a news source, interesting?

    However and to address the second portion, my rebuttal to it would be that more ignorant were the creators of the original KKK group themselves.

    Wouldn't you agree?

    It happened in SD, you’ll find stories and links in old posts on DR1

    Not only is your “rebuttal” not DR related, we do not permit discussions about race, so don’t go there.

    May I ask which country you originate from, and what exactly the "educated adults" there do for entertainment purposes? I for one could not understand why an "educated" adult would want to surround themselves with a substandard ignorant populace. You surely reside within your own private utopia. Care to share it with the rest of us commoners? Please tell. We await the substantive response.
