    Cangrejo bridge closed due to major structural failure.

    I used públicos to go to Puerto Plata on Saturday. So I was in 4 different públicos to go and come back. All four drivers said one week to be open but when I crossed the bridge to come back I asked a senior looking National Police officer and he said 2 weeks.

    Dr. Gomez at CMC

    Hotel D'Piero in Sosua

    Has the owner gotten rid of his large barking dogs as you walk in the front door. I've never stayed there but visited friends over the years

    Today's US Exchange Rate

    Wally's was 54.5 in Cabarete Monday March 7. Always better rate than Janet's. I think Janet's is the Western Union exchange rate. WU is always lower than Caribe Express or Wally's.
