    Default To Those Who Say That I NEVER Have ANYTHING Positive To Say About The DR, READ THIS!!

    Today I had two guys come to clean my "Cisterna", and my "Tinaco".
    I do that 2 to 3 times a year.
    They noted that my "Cisterna" cover was rusted to pieces.
    It has needed to be replaced for years, but I was hoping my wife might fall in and drown.
    Anyway, they said for 3,500 pesos they would go buy an aluminium top, and install it.
    I said "Do It"!
    And they did!
    They bought the top, and cleaned the cisterna & the tinaco for 6,000 pesos.
    Then, the "Go fill the gas tank" guy came, took my tank, and filled it.
    I gave him 1,200 pesos to buy the gas.
    When he came back, he gave me 50 pesos.
    He said the tank would only hold 1,150 pesos of gas!
    Then the "Go Get The Water Bottles" guy came to get my empties and re fill them.
    His company charges 20 peos per bottle, and I give him 25, so he get 5 pesos per bottle filled.
    He comes and gets the empty bottles off my colmado style rack, fills them, and puts them back in the rack.
    There were 13 bottles, so he made 65 pesos in Tips, and I gave him an extra 25 pesos since there were so many bottles, he made 4 trips on his "Motor".
    I got 3 things done today, my goal here is "One Thing A Day"!
    The cost was cheap, to say the least!
    I like THAT about the DR!!!!!

    Agree but remember: Nothing of that you have to do in a "normal" country. Its DR RELATED

    Explained (I think). In a normal country you would never have to do all that. Just in the DR.

    I guess normal means US.

    Cccccccccc thanks for the positive post.

    I don't recall him giving us a complete trip report on his recent stay at a resort, just a few teasers shortly after he arrived.

    With a whole weekend ahead and nothing that must be done, he can use the time to write the promised report.

    Sorry, its my fool you don't understand what I mean.
    The three things who make you happy today are things you never have to worry about when you live in the US or northern Europe.
    Because their are a lot of problems here , there are a lot of solutions, thanks god, but normally that type of problems should not exist in what I call a " normal " country.
