    Talking Hello and where are the bars?

    Hello all!
    I have been lurking here since I arrived about a month ago, and learned a lot from the boards, so thought it would be time for my first post.
    I am a 30tish Scandinavien single expat male working here in Santo Domingo for a multinational company. I have started my Spanish lessons but certainly need more studying there - I can expect to stay up to 4 years+ so hope the new lingo will penetrate my thick head sooner or later .
    I have lived and worked in multiple developing countries in both Asia and Africa.
    Meanwhile it would be great to meet some English speaking and like minded people here - be it in some good bars (any recommendations? Can be hang out style bar run by some foreigner and frequented by some of you guys) or elsewhere.
    Also noted the Easter bash in Sousha which might be a good chance for me to meet some of the DR1 crowd.
    Cheers! FF

    You might want to PM Voyager. He is another Scandinavian, not in the DR at present, but visits frequently & always Santo Domingo. And if you do contact him, tell him about your job........because he's looking to move here.

    Born in the U.S., raised in Oslo and live 50% in Santo Domingo. And I know the bars. I am arriving Wednesday or Thursday to SDQ. I'll pm you my number and we'll get together.

    Sounds great! - first beers on me!
    No work or travelling for me this weekend - so am certainly up for seeing town! Any other like minded pub crawl participants for this weekend just throw me a PM.

    Voyager; read a few of your previous posts - send me a PM next time you are in the area.

    Cheers!

    It will be a pleasure to know you both. And I am buying. We'll start at the lobby bar at the Melia, then we'll take my car to Punto y 'Corcho and hang with Javier for a bit. then, we will hit the real bars. I look forward to it.

    Regards

    Hej "Firefan"!

    I am UN-GODLY jealous of you!!! Aaarrrgghhh!!!! And it appears that you didn't even know Spanish when you got the assignment for Santo Domingo!

    I will probably arrive to Santo Domingo just before mid-April. Exact dates remain to be confirmed. I'll PM you my details.

    It would really be great to meet! I am very curious to learn your story!

    Just one question right now: Which Scandinavian country are you from? Let me venture a wild guess: I think you are Swedish! (I have this gut-feeling about that...) Did I win myself a beer now?

    By the way, I was born in Gothenburg!

    Best Wishes,
    "Voyager" (aka John)

    Mr. Pib, who posts as Bok on DR1 is another Scandihoovian living here. Unfortunately he's leaving Wednesday for Africa. Maybe when he's back?

    Am certainly not complaining!
    I have PMed the 2 interested in pubcrawl. Suggest we do it this Friday. We can then repeat it Saturday should we have the energy .
    Also suggest we include a bit of casino+cigar.
    PIB/BOK would be a pleasure to meet you too - let us know when you are back from the dark Africa! (I lived there myself for 2 years).
    Cheers! FF
