    Default In my dreams....

    I am spending August in some hidden little corner of the DR.... in a little casita with a garden.. where my Shihtzu can watch me write as I sit in the garden. It is very quiet here. There is really only the sound of the river.

    Perhaps this is a little outbuilding on a bigger property. It has running water and a bit of electricity for a fan but is not deluxe by any means.. in fact, it is wooden!

    We both feel very safe there since the owner's family is right near by and looks out for us.

    We are far away from any sort of colmado, or rather any loud speakers.

    There are some folks who have weekend houses here.. some Capitalenos.. or Santiagueros... they do not let out the news of this place since.... well... it is really not for outsiders.....

    is this possiible?

    Thanks to both of you...

    The Kolibripark looks beautiful but the webpage suffers from the "too much information" syndrome.. in that I do not really want to know about his custody fight with his nutty Albanian wife and am always a bit leary about too many Bishops and bible quotes.. Would that not interfere a bit with my daily Tarot readings? I do not wish to offend with my pagan practices.

    Los Montones sounds lovely.. I will definitely look into it further.

    Indeed, the Shihtzu would be easy to steal since she is terminally friendly and will jump into ANY car with anyone.. since she loves riding in cars. She prefers SUVs and families with children. Neither of which I provide her with..

    I am always grateful that she stays with me but would not be surprised if she left for a better offer.

    "Los Montones" are definately worth a look-see. Lots of really nice people up that way.

    ok, you live santiago through a bridge over rio yaque del norte and drive straight all the time. well, relatively because the road has millions of curves. drive towards san jose de las matas but eventually leave the main road and follow signs for a national park (forgot the name, sorry!). views are incredible and you will see many fantastic houses, lots of rich folks have holiday homes in that area.
    i remember a place calles cabanas san valentin, really beautiful location by the river, huge lot with small casitas. no music. no cars. not many people. very quiet. not sure how it would work for the doggie thou. dominicans love small goggies and there is a chance someone would snatch it. it could be me, in our SUV
