    Default Santiago clock is fixed.

    OK everybody listen up.

    As reported in DR1 daily news today, the Santiago town clock is working again so you can all get back to being punctual.

    Thank you, that is all.

    Any chance that the dudes who fixed it could fix ours in Sosua?
    It hasn't moved an inch in 15 years.

    I'm really glad they fixed the clock. It is important to preserve a nations history. The write up on DR1 news was really interesting.

    How old is the clock tower in Sousa? Has it really been broken for 15 years!

    Anyone have any photos of the restored clock tower?

    Where is The Clock Tower in Sosua?

    Is that the cement thing on Calle Ayuntimiento with the Christmas lights from 1983 dangling by a thread?

    Perhaps we can have Bob can take a picture of it from his Piper Cub next trip!
