    Not sure if you watched the news clip but the story wasn't presented in the positive light you are seeing it.

    Three American brothers held in Dominican prison proclaim their innocence

    News coverage in the United States about this case and how three brothers have been locked in jail in a foreign country without sufficient evidence (or what would be considered sufficient in their legal system). Might make the viewers think twice about visiting here.

    Three American brothers held in Dominican prison proclaim their innocence

    Temp Residency Renewal in corvid times

    Was there yesterday; from start to finish it was about an hour and fifteen minutes. They do limit the number of people so it's not as crowded as before but there were still between 50 to 60 people inside. I did all of the process online and yesterday was just to take the picture and receive the ID.
