    Sorry. I didn't explain that part right. No, he wanted 2000 pesos extra just to fix the two faucets. Then he didn't fix both. All it needed was a 10 peso washer. Somehow he went ahead and purchased...

    Since I'm ranting... one more thing needs to be mentioned.

    Our old kitchen ceramic was cracked in a few places. A friend of the family says that "they didn't do a good job". He wanted to replace...

    thinking about moving out as well, after being here for most of 8years.

    Maybe he gets some freebies, but I don't envy him. Not in the slightest. Don't get sick in the D.R., the healthcare can be brutal- esp. if you can only afford to go to the public hospital.

    I've seen some interesting things in the D.R. For example, just because we give away clothing, people will want it. A few times, they are definitely NOT poor. They live in a nicer house than we do...

    Good point. I don't know, as we don't live in the capitol - where he works. If his jurisdiction covers our area, then maybe.... It's a nice gesture at any rate, IMO.

    MA, no matter how hard we have it, if we look - we can always find someone worse off than us.

    not all are that lazy - a story that's a nice change of pace

    For years there are people lining up at a neighbor's house every morning at his house. My wife and I thought that he was maybe a foreman for a construction company or something. There might be 10...

    Thanks for your post. I'm just an occasional poster/peon... thinking that possibly the moderators can start an Ebola thread(??) Hopefully it will stay small.

    You're right. Good point.

    The true numbers will probably forever be a mystery. I guess that they are comparing the number of sick that they knew... with the number of sick that they know now.

    It's defensive driving on a whole new level. Motorcycle drivers are the most dangerous. That's why I like driving in the capital - less motos.
