    Monkey Jungle, grand opening

    The "Monkey Jungle", a new zip-line, natural-habitat monkey park, had their grand opening today. It was a great time, with approximately 100 people attending.

    Hurricane Weather- Punta Cana

    Tambo was just kidding. There is no need to start 6 threads on the same subject. Rice and beans already gave a decent response. There are no guarantees, and no one can predict the weather that far in advance. Please just relax and enjoy your vacation.

    Cuartro de Julio en Sosua

    While viewing the USA - England match, I started thinking about how far back the actual rivalry between these two countries went; Some 234 years, at least! That line of thinking lead me to wonder if there will even be a 4th of July celebration / BBQ at Rocky's this year. I have attended...

All the bad things you heard about Bani have been banished, all...

    DR1 get together at Rocky's Dec. 24 2009

    Can't we all just get along? By the way, I hope to have some kind of a little get-together at Rocky's (pending approval from Rick and Milka), December 24 (that's Christmas eve, but it is not a religious gathering by any means). I would love it if any and all DR1ers would stop by and say "hi"...

    An incident at the Playa Sosua

    I would like to report on an unfortunate personal accident, which, while initially severe and serious, ended happily. I believe this incident illustrates the highest level of human kindness and compassion, and is clearly indicative of the fine qualities of the people involved. First of all, the...
