    Its pretty much impossible to do anything once it gets to minus 40. You can't even barbecue your food as propane turns back to a solid and natural gas can't get hot enough.
    Although I agree with everyone's favorite things and they are all great and enjoyable (bribing cops is still fascinating), the weather still floats to the top form me.
    ...Melphis…. please.. enjoy Canadian winters??...I am from northern Minnesota and there is no enjoy involved in winter.....What I like most about the D.R.is the freedom...most laws here are ignored, the few that are enforced one can pay a little and they will be ignored also... most of the time...…..Doc...…...

    Freedom. Freedom to park car where I like, freedom to smoke where I like (always being considerate to others). Freedom to talk to kids without being considered weird. Just been back to the UK and the rules are stifling. Mind you a couple of years ago I would have said freedom to drive without a seatbelt, freedom to ride on a motorbike without a helmet and now I can't so maybe things are changing.

    The fact you can offer schoolkids walking in the rain a ride without being considered a predator is nice.

    I needed to see a Dermatologist today. My wife texted a doctor and I had an appointment for 2 pm. Very nice doctor from Santiago that examined all my spots and diagnosed my issue and gave me appropriate treatment process. 1000 pesos. In Canada I would have to see a regular doctor, probably wait at a clinic for hours who would then give me a consult with a specialist (dermatologist ) in 2 or 3 months. Here I can take care of medical business pretty well the same day unless its really complicated.

    While it may seem chaotic at times, life here is really one day at a time.
