    Default Some culture for you!

    I can't find any previous posts on this so sorry if everyone's been already but:

    I'm sure loads of you have seen the rather "odd" building up the road to Hispaniola Residency (behind the police station) and almost next door to the AMET building. If you haven't it looks a little out of place with spires and - well strange stuff hanging from it. Anyway, it's an art gallery / museum / art shop specialising in some rather "exotic" stuff.

    It's run by a German (multilingual) guy called Rolf (the owner, and self acclaimed king of the World) it's not always open but mid-morning should guarantee an entry (it's free). I am not a critic but I've got to say I was blown away by it all - Too much to mention here so go and see for yourselves. A couple of words of warning - There is some "interesting" nudity, and Rolf can be a bit overpowering if you bump into him, but he's interesting if you've got the time to spend chatting. Allow an hour or so and don't be afraid to open a few doors.....

    I loved it! 10 out of 10 - It really should be included in any guided tour of the area, and the view from the top is easily worth the climb up the stairs.

    Why THANK you Simon & Nicky.
    In the 10 years I have been posting on this board I have never seen mention of this Museum - possibly not somewhere frequented by your normal Sosua dwellers (despite the exotic & maybe erotic nudes!!).

    I will certainly try to give it a visit the next time I have to visit Sosua ~ Rolf sounds an interesting guy to 'Bump Into'!!

    Joining me for lunch at Rocky's...................

    Lambada (saving a maiden's honour with every stab at the keyboard just in case someone accuses rio of not being respectable. Won't need 3 guesses there either )

    Thank you Simon & Nicky. Rio & I will investigate.

    Well, if you two will be going to Rocky's during the week of August 15-24 (I know Rio won't be there until August), and with the permission of BushBaby and present boyfriend, I'll be honored to be allowed to buy you two lovely ladies a beer and some ribs.

    And please understand, no attack on Rio's maidenhood was intended.
