    Sosua Police/Noise Hotline

    When the neighbours complained about a different dog it got all the way to the fiscal.(squabble between rich gringos,of course). He simply said 'Dogs are supposed to bark'. Next case.

    The future of Sosua

    I think the planters project is purely a lack of foresight and not some deep-rooted conspiracy to put all of PC out of business. It simply means that the cars will be further into the road if they need to open the passenger door.The other side is already a no parking zone so doesn't apply there.

    The future of Sosua

    The unfortunate fact is that they burnt down the whole house to get rid of the cockroaches. Rebuilding will take time, And cockroaches are very resilient.

    The future of Sosua

    New Broom sweeps clean. Sosua is looking squeaky clean with Willy's workers doing a great job. I've not seen it that tidy before. Let's hope they can put a regular cleaning roster system in place and it's not just a flash in the pan to impress the locals. One is allowed to dream, no?

    Just been watching DV8's heartthrob James May talking about autonomous cars and that got me thinking about how they would function over here. With all the algorithms set to conform to normal driving practice and regulations built into the program I can imagine them sitting in the traffic...

    I was just sitting out on my balcony and there is a splendid Avocado tree in full view a few metres (Yards for our NA readers) away and was fascinated by the antics of the Mocking birds. There is a handsome male who has been hopping along the wall all day doing his best chirpy chirp and showing...

    Still alive.

    I have an insurance policy in Belgium due for payout and they are asking for proof that I'm still alive, ( a rather Kafkaesque scenario.) Apparently one goes to the local Mairie in Belgium and gets a certificate of the non-dead and that's it but I'm pretty sure that will not work in the...
