    Fyi

    Just to let you know that I truly believe in bringing what I can down to help the people in the DR. My checked-in luggage will be filled with nothing else than donated medical supplies, beanie...

    Thanks, Hillbilly

    you were a love to offer some time with you. We are definitely looking forward to our visit on the 26th.

    And, Stallion, don't feel you need to commit, but would like to meet you at Playa Dorada...

    Thanks, Ken

    for the reply. I know it has been a long time to be away from the boards. I apologize for my absence. I guess I am somewhat surprised that I have not heard from anyone else. I enjoyed the few...

    Long time no write, coming back to DR

    Hi Everyone,

    It has been a while since I posted last. I just booked a week starting on Feb. 25 to Gran Flamenco in PP. I am bringing a friend who will experience the DR for the first time. I...

    Go for it!

    My first visit was in Feb. of 2002 as a single female traveler who had never vacationed outside of an English speaking country. Based on my experience, I suggest you get away from the "safe" English...

    Nothing special

    just my first name. If anyone has ever heard it before, I would appreciate feedback. I have been trying for years to find out its origin, but have been unsuccessful. Those who research names as a...

    I would love to be able to offer a job, but......

    many businesses are struggling here in Michigan to stay afloat. Jobs are at a premium. Unfortunately, I don't have anything solid to offer someone. The only "position" I may have is for someone...

    At the expense of being lambasted.......

    I admit that I have not been a daily viewer of DR1 since my father's passing, but I do try to check in from time to time and am amazed to find that so many Dominicans are fleeing. I am not surprised...
  11. Well,......

    I guess I am speaking poetically. I mean the spirit of the people have not been depressed with a "hustle and bustle" world and the vegetation still appears lush (I know the water is not so hot :) )....
  12. So sorry to hear about the Malecon

    It was quite a lively place. I hope it will regenerate soon.

    I transported much more!

    I came down in Feb. of 2003 with a lot of medical supplies for barrio clinics--syringes, drainage supplies, various medications, inhalers, etc. and did not have a problem. I also brought with me a...
  14. Try the malecon in Puerto Plata on the weekend

    I was shown the malecon on a Saturday night when I was there in Feb. of 2003 by a Dominican AI gift shop worker. It was a wonderful experience to see a large part of the community out in the streets...
  15. I second the kudos for Canada!

    I first visited the DR in Feb. of 2003 and then was lucky enough to take another journey in Nov. of 2003 to Nova Scotia. I loved them both! They both share a population of friendly and generous...

    Bills

    I had a very similar feeling when first experiencing the DR but, being a business owner for 10 years, I know how unrealistic this proposal is (I wish we were all idealists and totally honest--that...

    Check your local specialty liquor stores

    I found that even in my small town of Battle Creek, I could order Brugal rum (right now it is unavailable). It may not be as unattainable as you think.

    Yes, Escott

    There are some people who just seem to attract a constant barrage of negativity. I have experienced it myself and it doesn't seem to have any logical foundation, but it exists. It is best to access...

    Okay, I will venture a recommendation for the Villa Doradas

    I had very little funds to visit and so I chose the cheapest AI, Villas Doradas. I had no complaints (Johnny Honda suggested a second floor room, which I got) and enjoyed my stay immensely. I did...
  21. KrackedKris

    Yes, that is exactly what my instructors said about a 22. So if I would ever purchase a gun, it must be at least a 9mm. So until I know I could shoot it, I won't get it. But, at least, I now have...
  22. You go, LadyBird!

    I have some sense of what you may be experiencing, as I am a single woman who was threatened last summer and tried to get an order of protection. Because I was denied the order, I began to think of...

    Since CuriousaboutDR has not posted since,

    it appears, most likely, this may have been a fake question. I have only been on this board for a year, but it does seem the board appears to get "congured" postings. I wonder what the poster gets...

    In reply to the original poster, White Iguana,

    I have been contemplating this same question for at least 6 years, as I saw the decline coming. There is no ideal answer. I guess you have to ask yourself, what is important for you in your...

    Pushing 50 and I plan to usher it in with a blast!

    I am not one of those who cringes at their age. I figure I earned every damn one of those years and wish to celebrate it to the max!! That said, I am throwing my own 50th party in August and am...
