    Default Dominicanos en Los Angeles?

    I've lived in L.A. for three years. I've met 2 Dominicans. I'm originally from NYC. If you live in L.A. or in the area, drop me an email at dheredia4@yahoo.com It's depressing that some people in California don't even know what Domincans are. At the drive thru at Taco bell the other day, this guy asked me what flag I was representing on a T-shirt meant. When I replied La Republica Dominicana, He said, and I quote " What's that."

    I was born in raised in Los Angeles--Silverlake to be exact--right next to Echo Park by downtown. Predominantly mexicanos. I actually never met ONE dominican growing up there. However, the people do know what Dominicans are. I used to always get mistaken for that--well still am anyway. I think it's just the dominican community ain't all that visible. I have met a few cubans and puerto-ricans however.

    Actually, there is a good group of Dominicans out in LA-
    Get in touch with the consulate they organize events out here that are good for meeting some Dominicans-
    Also- there is a lady down in Long Beach who imports products from DR- a little salchichon and Presidente never hurts

    Default Right Here

    Over here in Inglewood and for about the past year I have been trying to contact fellow Dominicans in the Los Angeles area. Glad to hear from you.

    I will contact you and we will get together to add to the (single digit) number of Dominicans in Los Angeles.

    I live in San Diego, Ca, born in DR. I think it's funny too that no one knows la Republica Dominicana but yet here in San Diego most young Mexican dance to Merengue and Bachata at the clubs. usually if I speak spanish to a Mexican they are totally suprise and then they come to the conclusion that I must be from Puerto Rico. oh they one that kills me it's " habla muy bien el espaņol" of course I do it's my first language. Anyway, here in San Diego there are a few Dominicans mostly because of the military.

    One of my acquaintances in the DR has a brother in the US Navy that lives in San Diego. He's been there for ages already. If I can get his number, I'll try to pass it on to you.

    "How did you learn Spanish?"(The same way I learned English), "You don't look Dominican"(How does a Dominican look?), "Where in Mexico is that?"(It's outside of Mexico,in the gulf! "Are you and Haiti the same country?"(No, I'm not a country yet) Those are some of my actual answers. Sometimes I just have to bite my tongue and answer in a civil manner.
