    1/3 of my suitcase is stuff. This trip is towels, sheets, tv wall mount, and items for friends.

    90% of my suitcase is stuff. i got to the point where i take minimum clothing (i can always do the laundry) and i even leave some winter ropa behind (so i can take more stuff to DR now and use even less luggage space next time since i have something to wear stashed at home). i am a master at packing too, within ounces of the airline limit.

    Danilo already settled this early this year. Removing the exemption goes against DR-CAFTA and gringos in the US not happy about it. So, it's a waste of time ro go over this again. If they are doing so badly, they can always close and do something else. They won't be missed.

    i think there is a point to this. danilo is seen, more and more, as the man of the pueblo. someone who wants to make dominicans happy. and presenting tax exemption issue as harmful to dominican people, to padres de famila, to amas de la casa - this is putting this matter in a different light.

    Default Crumbs

    The businessmen know the government is not going to tax the under $200 imports. It cannot. They are whining to get attention so the government will throw them a crumb of some sort to make them go away.
