    Turning el Ingenio in Montellano into plant to produce ethanol

    Has anyone heard of the potential plans for foreign owned companies to buy the ingenio in Montellano and turn it into a plant to produce ethanol fuel? What pollution effect would this have on the town? Would it be worse than the pollution caused by the sugar cane that used to be processed there?

    Toronto Dominicanos: Why do all the males like to cook?

    My husband is Dominican and has been in Canada now for about 3 1/2 years. When he arrived, he could not cook to save his life. Maybe a fried egg, etc. but he was definitely used to a house of women cooking and doting on him for his every beck and call. I am a good cook so the cooking issue...

    We are driving and not taking Caribe Tours. An earlier thread listed the time as 7 hours but that was by Caribe Tours, which stops a lot. We will make a few pits stops and want to end up at the Oasis Canoa Hotel in La Romana. An estimate would be greatly appreciated.
