    I was not just "traveling back and forth within the DR" I was studying, staying in places for a week/two weeks/ three weeks at a time - interviewing often in Spanish and French and filing in English. I carry a permanent photo press issued from the IPS office in the United Nations. My articles have been translated into 6 languages. Two of them were translated into Spanish and carried - with my byline - in Diario Libre.

    I will match my empirical knowledge against any foreigner on this board (who is NOT married to a Dominican - as in that does not include AE, DV8, Chiri, Matilda, CB, Bob Saunders and perhaps others)
    Am glad for you and your quest in the DR - I hope the rest you wrote, although cavalier; wasn't to impress or rub off on my face?

    What are you talking about? The argument for the last month from the elitists was that you couldnt live for $2500 and someone did it with 2 help staff lol. I just find that to be hilarious.

    Best deal is a new restaurant called El Buho Cafe on Arzobispo Nouel and Duarte. Best coffee in the zona colonial, breakfast and lunches reasonably priced. Food Prices range from $4.00 to $10.00 and its in a beautiful 16th century residence with a large partialy covered Spanish Courtyard.

    How much did that cost and I assume it is a submersible pump. Did you affix a pull rope that will not rot ? I have seen some people try to pull a pump up by the pipe and that didn't end well (no pun intended), as it actually did end up in the well

    One and a half year ago I had a well drilled at the school of my in-laws. Paid 48k pesos for drilling the hill and about 27k for the pump and installing the same.
    So in total about USD1500

    we seem to want to just wander and chat

    like a herd of cats

    too bad that there is lots of info about apartments and water and wells in this thread that others may never see?
    maybe mods can clean it up?

    I popped in to Buho Cafe yesterday. It's where Drakes bar used to be just down from Supermercado Nacional and Hotel Roma (which has also closed). I always used to like Drakes and I got the impression that the business was working and it closed because of problems with ITBIS. It's nice to see the venue open again.
