    Port-au-Prince Makes It to Most Dangerous Cities in Latin America List

    And how did San Juan become that way? Puerto Rico is not a US State, it's a territory. They don't pay taxes. They govern themselves. It's going to get much worse there before it gets better. We should just cut them loose. I'm sure it would get so much better.

    Sosua Beach Unions Want More Involvement

    The only thing nefarious going on is the false hope of plaza spots being given to the vendors. If you remember the timing of the plaza announcement, it was after the vendors started putting up resistance to moving out. Getting tenants to leave when they don't want to is always a bit of...

    It is not a gov't project. The entire development is on private property. They need the gov't help to clear the vendors off of the public 60 meter beach setback. A private citizen can't go in and push people off of that land. And with some of the vendors being located on the private land...

    So that would be what, about 150 spots in the new plazas? Those are going to be some huuge plazas. I just hope there's still room for the luxury condos. I think the umbrella guys and the banana boat guys should get plaza spots too. At least 6 tattoo shops, and 4 Velvet Elvis vendors. And...

    You could post a weekly photo update of goings ons, vendor interviews, etc. At least then we'd have some fresh content to remark on?

    Minimize the gun play. Certainly a chance of that.

    Thinking about flying?

    Correct. A couple things you didn't mention is that the airlines were already in semi-panic mode due to the upcoming Baby-Boomer shortage and less Military pilots entering the commercial market. All airlines were scrambling to fill those voids when the pandemic hit. And the gov't paying...

    As I've said before, I don't expect any of the current vendors ending up in a plaza. The Executive Branch is involved, the President probably walked away with a Penthouse and 10 plaza spots. He didn't fly all the way to Sosua and go home with nothing. The remaining plaza spot leases got...

    You can see it on Google Earth. If you click on the "measure/ruler" icon you can measure back from what looks like the High Tide mark inward for 60 meters. Not exactly scientific but it gets you close. Depending on the Google Earth you have loaded, you can actually pick the time of day and...

    That depends to whom they've been paying rent. If they're paying it to someone who didn't have permission to build on the that private land in the first place, then the person who built the vendor shack is a squatter and the person who rents it is a squatter. But if they have an agreement...

    I'm not sure what rights you're talking about securing. Any rental agreements on the beach, regardless of who their paying the rent to, will most likely be similar to a North American type tenancy-at-will. And probably verbal agreements at that. Monthly Tenancy at Will gives both parties...

    Exactly, but not quite enough for two medium sized towers. In the translation First Bite might mean First Installment? Who knows. Reporting here is never spot on, then we lose more in the translation. What's going on currently in the North side of rt 5 construction site? That might be...

    I think most do. But there are some who definitely don't. When they use terms like disgusting money grab, gangster like power moves, ruthless money grab, it's obvious they're clueless. It's a middle class Dominican family that owns the land. They can do whatever they please with their...
