    Four-day work week to be trialled in Dominican Republic

    What always gets me is how the people who want to PARTY HARD and "hate work" always seem to have such an extensive list of desires that they want to fulfill. The same folks that complain about how low wages are here are the ones who provide poor customer service, show up late or not at all...

    Warranty Repair/Replacement needs to go to USA. Customs duties when it comes back?

    The answer is probably obvious since it involves money and the DR in the same sentence but I have a Gopro that may be damaged and I may need to RMA it. The issue is common and the fix is that GoPro sends you a new camera. I bought it in the States and brought it here on the plane because the...

    Alburquerque Compres gets 12 years for murder

    Ridiculous. 12 years for hunting someone down and shooting them, then executing them? Should be life.

    Need Recommendation on D.R. Vacation

    Now a days Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee is prohibitively expensive. That said when I was in Jamaica I fell in love with it. I highly recommend Papua New Guinean coffee. Same landrace as the Jamaican coffee, grown under similar conditions. Medium roast tastes amazing and it DOESN'T cost...

    Trial of Jennifer Joaquin

    "Mande a matar a mi esposo!! Todo lo que han dicho sobre mí son mentiras y especulaciones!! Usted no puede juzgar condenar sin antes investigar a fondo!! Nadie tiene pruebas de que yo mande a matar a mi esposo!!!" Despicable. I've always found that when accused of something and someone...

    Trial of Jennifer Joaquin

    3. -I can say that I for one deal with girls WITHOUT tattoos exclusively a. - I deal with sincerely religious girls EXCLUSIVELY. b. If I see devil horns or vulgarity in a girl's online presence I disengage immediately. Same for pointy nails or that "I'm dead inside" face c. Not a 100% deal...

    Trial of Jennifer Joaquin

    Some guys have done "well" here in terms of finding someone that works for them or is compatible. That said it's a real shame that as much as I HATE to say it it's really a shame that some of the guys that do the best are those who hook up with a...well hooker, pay her her fee and then HIT THE...

    Candidates for Miss RD

    Most boring, plain and trite looking girls I've ever seen in my life. Ms. San Cristobal has a face that is a little different than all the others. Same shape, same variations on the same skin tone, and they all look like they are vapid af. I'd rather chill with a girl I meet in Agora or 360...

    FDC: Chinese businesses violate the laws

    Who knows how much of their violence-work is outsourced but I gotta say the Chinese sure do get a lot done without using overt violent methods or at the very least they don't shit where they lie. Not sure if they are using diplomacy, simply greasing a lot of palms, or what but you don't hear...

    Nacional at Sarasota (SD)

    Understood, and that makes a lot of sense. That said, those 20-40 floor buildings ain't cheap, and there is no where else in the country that has that sort of arcitecture. Would not surprise me in the least to learn that 1-2 of those buildings, of which there are dozens (over a hundred?)...

    FDC: Chinese businesses violate the laws

    My man needs to button up another button on that jacket or just leave it unbuttoned like the guy sitting next to him.

    Take a look at Maria's post. Whether it is gdp or assets/wealth I do not remember and I am having a difficult time finding results under "Golden polygon" or "central polygon" but that is indeed what I remember reading. Between the los cacicazgos area or basically 2-4 streets north and south of...

    LA FISCAL ( D.A ) vs COPS ( policia )

    How you dress tells a lot about a person. Sobriety, simple/plainness, even to the extent of being boring and somber (minus the sadness) are the traits one looks for in a qualified candidate for politician, lawman, religious scholar, etc. You are not alone in your way of thinking, hence the...

    This is not good

    This country is more like Mexico than people think it is. It is not Europe. It's not a place to come and buy land and live safely and do your little homestead thing. You can maybe do that in a residencia in the capital or Santiago but not in the country. It is a dangerous country with lots...

    LA FISCAL ( D.A ) vs COPS ( policia )

    Also, I'd like to add to the voices - for a very long time now law and order has become basically a joke the world over. Abuses, unprofessional behavior, corruption, failure to adhere to or uphold values that bring order peace and justice to the common people of the nation. Nothing spells that...

    Nacional at Sarasota (SD)

    It's a "nice area" by default. Between la Nuñez and Lincoln, a couple streets up from the Mirador Sur, basically smack dab in the middle of the busiest and wealthiest area of the country. I forget the name for it but there are 2 areas of Santo Domingo that have like 60-70% of the entire GDP of...
