    Default To all of Dominican Republic Complainers.

    If you guys have the urge to complain about anything in DR, I wish you all a long week stay in london. When I landed here yesterday, the temperature was -2 degrees C (28 degrees F). I froze my a$$ walking from train station to my uncle's house. Those 4 long blocks were the longest of my life. After living here in DR, i must say, i can't stand the cold any longer. The food here is excellent and I have eaten in 3 different restaurants already. The arabic restaurants here are even better than in USA. London is fun but the cold has made me wish to fly back to santiago as soon as possible. 5pm seems like 10pm at night, dark and lifeless in the residential streets. I am in st. john's wood area and it simply dies at night. No one talks to anyone here and we have gypsies beggars with babies asking for money in the cold streets of downtown.
    I would rather sweat in blackout nights without water than to freeze my tracero here in london.
    I miss DR already.

    Last night -5C with 30MPH winds at 6PM and winter hasn't really started. Dark at 4:30. Last week in Buffalo, 50 miles north of here, they had three feet of snow. What is crazy is people still ask me why I would want to go back to the DR.

    Sorry POPNYChic but you get no sympathy from me. It was about 19F degrees this whole weekend in Michigan and now currently 36F here in Long Island (where I'm working this week), but with the wind feels like 23F...55F would be a heat wave.

    AZB is aplatanao even if he won't admit it.

    It's been getting down to the low 60's at night here in Santiago and it's raining a lot. We have the comforters out and all the windows closed, brrr.
