    If you reread my post, I was commenting on my direct observations from 8:30pm-10pm. Then I closed with “I can’t say what happened after 10pm though”.
    You say you arrived at 11pm.
    See the disconnect?

    But if you still want to say “you was wrong”, so be it.
    It’s almost like your trolling for an argument?

    The numbers are reduced during this time because 75% of the chicas are still in their beds sleeping.....lol

    Thanks, but no thanks. I go out maybe once a week. Can’t handle more than that.

    WOW! Seems like every thread now is about Sosua/Prostitution. Cool.

    If the red light district were moved to the other part of town, the family tourism fans would complain the red light district is discouraging families from going there.

    I don't think there is a plan under our definition of what a plan would be.
    I think there is an idea of what they want with no real plan on how to get there.

    What I don't really get is why they want to make life difficult for themselves, first having to drive prostitution out in some way and then try to get family tourism in. It's not like those two streets in Sosua are anything special that needs to be preserved for family tourism.
    Why not just forget about the prostitution challenge and just create a new Sosua center/downtown across the beach Punta Cana style? Most family tourists would be there for the beach presumably, so build a walk bridge from the beach to across the highway and create some sterile Sosua center tourist place there. Problem solved and you have new tourist acceptable infrastructure immediately without having to somehow fix the decrepit mess that is Sosua center now.

    From an accounting standpoint, bleeding out the prostitution and increasing the family demographic would mean dramatically lower liquor sales. Since food is at best A 5% margin, what would Sosua businesses do to absorb that loss?

    Removing Sosua as a sex destination for North Americans is not an economical decision for Doms.

    I guess so, but then why pick Sosua for this miraculous transformation of morality?
