    Starbucks in the DR

    it's the only place i've visited that isn't a serviced restaurant that does not have the prices included in the price. It's rather costly.

    Is Santo Domingo becoming a cement jungle? UNPHU architects say city needs more green

    It's done already. There is little city planning here. There are stores I've seen signs for in neighborhoods and just wondered how the traffic would be. I am fortunate to live in front of a government building so I don't have to worry about a tower being built and blocking my view. I go and...

    Juan Dolio and stories I've heard

    I used to live in Juan Dolio for a year. Around 2016. I'm American as well but not white. I can blend in a little more at times. My experience was good. Safe, I hung out on the blvd many nights. Having a beer, eating, or just chatting. The beach isn't so great in my opinion. You can get robbed...
