    Sosua - Welcome to the Red Zone - Sosua

    I seem to be stuck between the both worlds: I have acquaintances who need the 1100 for a pack of Pampers and 1100 for a can of milk powder as well as acquaintances who walk the beach.

    Sosua - Welcome to the Red Zone - Sosua

    Guys, gals, please forgive my ignorance and don't jump down my throat, but if prostitution is not illegal in the DR, why are girls arrested on Pedro Clisante? And how is the selection made? I mean, most of the girls on PC look like prostitutes (I imagine that they are). Why aren't the same girls...

    Ha! Same thing happened to me in Sosua. Was it a fat f*cker with a gap in his teeth driving a white CRV?

    Free wifi on jetBlue

    When I flew back to NY from SD on jetBlue in May, there was free wifi all the way back to the US, which hadn't been the case before. United out of Newark never has it. My question is for those who use jetBlue: Is it always the case that free wifi is available on the flight?

    Best Italian Restaurant in Cabarete/Sosúa

    Both La Tarappa and Las Palmas in Puerto Plata, if you're ever there, are run by Italians and have delicious, thin-crust pizza.

    Best Italian Restaurant in Cabarete/Sosúa

    Gotta love the red sauce done well. La Tarappa in Puerto Plata makes a delicious red sauce for their pizza. The crust is done well, too. Their pasta dishes, however, are mediocre.

    Same in Southeastern PA, although the owners may still be Italians, all the cooks are Guatemalens.

    Best Italian Restaurant in Cabarete/Sosúa

    Do that most nights. I like to get out of the house occasionally for a change of scenery, even though you can always make it better and far cheaper at home.

    Seems there's a consensus on Bliss. Is it expensive?

    Best Italian Restaurant in Cabarete/Sosúa

    I hadn't really been thinking of fine dining nor of authentic Italian cuisine, because I had come to think that honestly fine dining didn't exist in the DR. But from everyone's feedback, I'm coming to see that there are options. Thank you, all!

    cast iron frying pans

    Ha, yes, many moons ago when I, too, moved out, I took one of my parents antique cast iron pans and have lovingly cared for it all these 45 years. Nicely cured, it is. They just aren't made the same today, from what I've seen. I will definitely check out what they offer on Amazon, Rey. Thanks...
