    Zinc roofs are now in the minority

    As the DR continue to improve exonomically, wooden homes with zinc roofs are on their way to extinction as happened in the 20th century in neighboring Puerto Rico after the 1940’s. (https://arquitexto.com/2022/03/viviendas-populares-de-salcedo/) Zinc roofs are quintessential in the DR because...

    Starting Tomorrow , the stamp “Admitted” will NO longer be used in DR

    It’s a step up to focusing on whether maids can or can’t run around town in their maids uniform. You know, the challenges of life comes down to that. This was an issue in certain parts of SD since many people felt uncomfortable watching a well-to-do family eating in a restaurant with the maid...

    First EVER Deaf Person to be Intern for NYPD is from DR

    Since he wears hearing aids, it seem the issues are the ears themselves. If the nerves that connect the ears to the brain are damaged, the ears work perfectly but they aren’t able to get the signals to the brain, hence you’re deaf. Hearing aids are useless when the issue are the nerves and not...

    Luis Abinader rejects assassination attempt on Trump

    That’s after realizing it wasn’t serious, but it isn’t nice to fall to the ground and see your blood dripping from your face! Whoever saying they would be OK in that situation doesn’t know what they’re talking about. When Trump saw that, he didn’t know if it was blood from his ear lobe or from...

    Cockfighting in Punta Cana

    Even in Spain they tried to make it illegal on a nationwide scale and everywhere but in parts of Andalusia and the Canary Islands it’s illegal. Like the Puerto Ricans, those from the south and islands turn a blind eye and deaf ears to Madrid’s attempt in destroying cockfighting. Guess from what...

    Dr Jiminian complaints about the excess of Haitians in the hospitals

    Dr Jiminian may not be much well known among expats, but he is known with Dominicans because he’s constantly being interviewed regarding his clinic and such. He was born poor but through the years has seen an improvement (moving up socioeconomically is actually more common among Dominicans than...

    Cockfighting in Punta Cana

    Modern society is based much of Roman (and Greek) inventions at the time they were empires. From aqueducts to coliseums, how much of democracy works, city planning, even having running water (aqueducts) and more. The Renaissance is basically applying once again many of the Roman emphasis to...

    Cockfighting in Punta Cana

    The same as in any sport. To a degree who will win is up to chance. People will support one or the other, but none does it to lose. The road taken to the result is also interesting. As said before, put two roosters in the same place snd unless they are domesticated, one will fight the other one...

    Luis Abinader rejects assassination attempt on Trump

    The most central part of a democracy is tolerance of those you don’t like. Not only supporters of Trump should reject this, but also believers in democracy since this is not how it is done. Luis Abinader condemns the assassination attempt of Donald Trump. El presidente Abinader rechaza el...

    Haiti Seeks Reparations From France.

    Remember, the number one problem with the Haitian Domination was that in 1822 Boyer said he arrived as a brother to Dominicans, but in practice Dominicans were treated as a conquered people, a second class people in their own land controlled by foreigners. The first to be removed from political...

    Haiti Seeks Reparations From France.

    The oppresoln by the Haitians (more by the Haitian government and army more than the Haitians per say, the government and army is a sliver of all the people in a country) is an obvious part of Dominican history. Spanish was also prohibited for much of those 22 years and the Dominicans also...

    Cockfighting in Punta Cana

    Hmm, maybe Punta Cana needs a luxury cockfighting arena where the seats are very confortable plush with the ability to give massages, etc. Perhaps sonething could be done to not make cockfighting potentially deadly as to attract the most tourist audience as possible. Otherwise, it might have a...

    Haiti Seeks Reparations From France.

    They attempted, but Dominicans refused to pay that tax on the basis that the debt was between Frenchmen and their slaves. This wasn’t pointed out, but quickly glancing the agreement in French between France and Haiti, it specifically says the inhabitants of the French part of the island and it...

    Haiti’s first inter-government communication blasts DR government

    Desparate and most Haitians are also not aware of what is a legitimate document. Many think that bribing guards and paying for a fake cédula or a fake document actually means they are legitimate. They truly believe that and that’s also part of the problem, IMO. If the authority takes away a fake...

    Cockfighting in Punta Cana

    It was funny a few years ago when the US government attempted to ban cockfighting in its entire territory including the colonies like Puerto Rico. There too cockfighting is widespread, in fact many Puerto Ricans go to the DR with their roosters to take a part in cockfighting championships. lol...
