    The Empire Strikes Back!!

    I was asked if I wanted the consulate notified. I told them no. The consulate of my country of origin is not here to do :poop: on my behalf.

    Sosua Beach Unions Want More Involvement

    The guy with the whiskey and rum youtube channel just posted in one of his videos that he has seen three different renderings of the new developments.

    The Empire Strikes Back!!

    I don't find their actions offensive either. Just interesting. How easy would it be to goto the average construction site (owned and being developed by Dominicans) and locate illegal workers? I imagine it would be like the scene out of the movie "The Untouchables": Just a thought...

    As I stated in my last post I was in PriceSmart on the re-up tip. Selection was really down for my usual selections. What good is having rice and beans in your pantry if you can't drink well. Fortunately for me they had one of my standards on the shelf. So I grabbed the net and held on tight...

    Sosua Beach Unions Want More Involvement

    I have a dream That Sousa beach will be judged by quality of the beach instead of the nature of the ambiance. 🤪 Fat chance that is going to happen in DR1 But what I really hope is all those talking about their desire for the improved developments on Sosua beach actually contribute more than the...
