    What are your rights?

    So you are sitting in a restaurant and a man and comes up to you. He says he is a lawyer and you are under arrest. He has a warrant for your arrest. The name on the warrant, well its not your name. Can this man, a lawyer arrest you and force you into his car or is it kidnapping?

    The town of Sosua is killing itself.....

    Nothing more that pure greed. When I first arrived here years ago, dinner was about $8. The peso then went down and dinner went to $5. These days dinner is going for $15 to $20 and basically its crap. Food prices in the supermarkets have been dropping over the past month or so but not the greedy...

    I started this new topic since there are interested parties. There are public taxis everywhere and in many cases are more than 50% cheaper than the tourist taxis.

    A Vacation in DR......

    After traveling here 30 times over the last 8 years, its my opinion that this is one of the few places in the world where you can go online, choose from 5 different airports, not even needing to use the same one for both segements of your trip. Planning a trip here is so easy. Getting around is...
