    Default The rant thread

    Many of we foreigners have moved to this beautiful country for one reason or another. There may be things that we miss from our home countries and things that we don't. For me, as a well seasoned traveller I can't think of anywhere else in the world I would rather live than here.....But it's not all rosy all the time!

    Here's your opportunity to vent your spleen and get your frustrations out in the open. What really pushes your buttons about this place? Maybe it's something trivial like there is no change in this country (as in coins or small notes). Or that it is impossible to find a working ATM on a Sunday evening! Generalisations are welcome.

    If you have grown up in a western country, to adapt to life here, you have to learn about tolerance, and a lot of it.

    But are you secretly seething underneath it all?

    Let the fun begin and let's see!

    Why does it have to rain right after I wash my car?
    It happens every time, without exception.
    I know for a fact that it didn't rain every time, back in Canada, because sometimes it was snow.

    I can get used to all the usual things that are just niggles really but the one thing that really drives me crazy is blackouts.........
    I will never get used to them. They always happen at the worst possible times and make life a misery unless you have alternatives sources of supply.

    In the driving rain. In the left lane. On the autopista. With three on it.

    I don't live there yet...but my 2 cents

    The fact that in Sajoma, EVERYTHING closes between 12 and 2:30pm and to just get a Pepsi you have to walk all the way to El Rancho restaurant even though you stay right across the street from the colmado!

    I love that about Las Terrenas, plenty of shops close for the siesta.
    I just make sure I buy all my stuffs during their working hours, it's so simple and it works!
