    Unhappy easter. again. :-(

    you may not know but i live fairly close to the POP prison. just moments ago i was making dinner when i heard people shouting outsize.
    went to check it out - small moto accident. both parties were ok so they started a fight.
    as you can imagine within seconds they were surrounded by cheering crowds. i took my eyes off them for a moment and next thing i know everyone is running and screaming, mothers holding children in their arms. some young bloke was running down the street shooting a gun. she fired couple of times then jumped into the back of the pasola and drove off.
    darn. semana santa in POP: too much time off work, too much presidente and brugal and too many guns.
    now i am reluctant to walk the dog

    Here in America we have sports boxes in the bars enabling one to bet on various outcomes of the game of the day.If any ex pats own a bar why not sell boxes based on the Samana Santa death count?Make a buck off these ****heads who are hell-bent on killing themselves every year!

    How about the concept of really doing what you are supposed to do In Semana Santa? Go to church or just stay home with your family and friends, and making habichuelas con dulce and a vegetarian meal, how about that concept?

    thats what seems to be going on here - streets are deserted apart from the flag wavers - what are they for by the way , is it an attempt to slow traffic

    i am not sure that was directed to me since i had meat for dinner followed by home made frappuccino as i would prefer to bite off my leg than take a spoon of habichuelas con dulce. on the other hand i am at home and so is my family. sadly those two places are thousands of miles apart.
    after yesterday's events it is pretty quiet here today, blissfully no music apart from the loud ear-drum shattering howling of my vecino, i suppose it it her take on dominican idol.

    Why is that foreigners hate Habichuelas con Dulce, it seems like only we Dominicans enjoy it.

    dv8 do you live in a good area of POP? because that scenario that you described is more likely to happen in a barrio.
