    Default What is the average time a Dominican gets up?

    It seems they get up at 6am when I go to sleep so all the workers at our place think I am damn ass crazy for waking up at 2pm. They laugh...

    I guess it could be b/c of the electricity situation where they don't get much light at night??!!!

    They seem to drink so late and get up so early, they are HARD CORE!!!!

    Aside from those who have to get up to begin their commute to wherever their work is, in a lot of homes without A/C the windows are open at night. So a lot of people will wake up when the sun comes up though waking up and actually getting out of bed aren't always the same thing. And a few people have no problem sleeping through the sunlight but I know I couldn't.

    I have some family and friends around who lives just like cjp mention.
    And if i have been playing on the chickenfights and are not in a condition to be transported to my own bed, i usually wake up early the next morning because of open windows and the sound of roosters, dogs and early workers going to their daily work.

    Patterns/routines are best kept undefined and to a minimum.

    Most dominicans around 6 i believe ,
    I know people who get up at 5am then go run and do excercice and then go to work around 7. and this are people around 50 years old

    Zumba classes and such in santiago are at 6 am so can you imagine ? People like to exercise before they work. ( im talking about upper class people i know, if your average concho driver does it i dont know)

    OMG the title of this thread is misleading or I have a dirty mind these days


    I Noticed that people in warm countries wake up very early, I suppose before it gets too hot.
