    Default Hello DR1

    I have read this site for years, and have finally started to participate a little here and there. Now that I will be relocating to DR, I dont want to just take from the site, but also contribute. I see this site as a very valuable tool to both the season vet, and the fresh newbie.

    I am 38 years old, from the Bronx. I have lived, and been friends with Dominicans, for my whole life. Dominicans have always shown me a lot of love, I think in general they get a bad wrap in the eyes of many. With that being said, I am not blind to many of the ills that plague the DR as well.

    I have been visiting DR since 2004 with "dom yorks" and have seen many parts of the island. I have well over 50 trips of 1 week or longer. My longest trip being 2 months when my daughter was born in 2017. Even with this time spent, I know this is still going to be a major transition, With many bumps along the way.

    My wife is from Valverde de Mao, although I love it there and the surrounding areas up in the mountains. There isnt an international school for my daughter, nor a lot of activities for her to partake in. So, we will reside in santiago while my wife finishes her school. I believe she has 4 semesters left. She took a break after my daughter, so we could all live together in NY. Now its time for us to return.

    My daughter is going to be 3 in October, so the need to find a school isnt urgent. I would like to be in a coastal town by time shes 5. I look foward to checking out costambar, rio san juan and cabrera in the up coming months. As I will have plenty of free time.

    A good chiropracter is going to be key in my transition, as I have had a back surgery in December. I will be having another one this month, and possibly a 3rd after the new year. I am also interested in accupunture as well. Any recommendations in Santiago, or northcoast towns is greatly appreciated!


    Thanks again DR1
