    Default Been There, Done That

    I am really just thinking of a couple of threads for the newbies (many of whom are Dominicans!) to be able to post and get up to the 500 posts which will help them get into the 500 posts for the Off topic thread where some of the really juicy stuff goes on..

    But also to hear about places which are off the beaten track where others have gone and loved and would go back to...

    Ok.

    So have you been there, and done this?

    To Los Patos, outside of Barahona, and swum in the river all afternoon while eating chicken?

    My fondest memory so far of many is the entire day I spent with 3 Dominican families celebrating their sons graduation from Medical school, we spent the entire drinking and partying as the Women made a huge Vat of Sancocho ( think its called that).
    By the end of the evening 12 to 14 hours later, the third family offered me up their 24 year old daughter, I had just turned 38 at the time and didn't understand what was happening, they kept pushing me towards her. My friend ( the new Doctor) who spoke good english said, "she is yours for the evening".. Not wanting to be a bad guest I accepted the young maiden.. now that is hospitality Dominican style...

    Pimping their daughter eh? That what it sounds like especially about the "Evening" part. This is the reason why DR is a big H* train. Whatever happened to family values and morals?

    I'll bet she asked for money to pay for her "Celular", tuition,(Although she doesn't go to school) money for medicine for her sick mother( Who was at the party drinking for 14 hours), money to pay the "Compra/Venta" to get her gold chain,(A "GIFT" from a "Gringo" Amigo) out of hock, and of course, "Taxi Fare", even though she took a "Caro Publico" to her next "DATE"!
    "K Vaina"!
    CCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCC
    AND, "Lucky You"!

    some time ago i went to los montones, i never got round to writing trip report...

    don't even ask me where is that place, i have no clue. we drove from santago higher and higher up the mountains. stunning views. quite a few drop dead gorgeous, huge properties and houses of ricos out there. if we ever come to some spare money i would love to buy a small land there and have a holiday house. really amazing area.
