    IRS wanting to know my assets in DR

    The Dominican or Dominicana

    I've heard plenty of people refer to the Dominican Republic this way. Dominicans and non Dominicans say it all the time.

    For all you Dominicans missing home. I found Punta Cana Dominican Grill in Marietta, GA. It's on Powder Springs near Macland Rd. The food was good and the people were very friendly & chatty. I was happy :) Ccarabella

    Inquiring about an area in Santo Domingo DN

    I'd appreciate any insight on the following area. Avenida Gustavo Mejia Ricart between Nu?ez de Caceres and Winston Churchill.
