I read in a few threads and other articles that a lot of Germans selling their properties and moving away from the northcoast.
Why is that and where are they moving to? Another country or somewhere else in the domenican republic?

Conchman said:As a German student in the US, I was amazed at the total lack of any knowledge in basic history or geography. In 9th grade, most students could not pick Florida on a map, nor did they know the capital of Florida (this was a school in Florida, mind you). This was pretty sad. I could barely speak English and had to tell them that Miami was not the capital.
Easy there fella.

So I have two questions for those of you that believe we're collectively a bunch of idiots up here. First, how many men has your contry put on the moon? Second, what recurring error did I purposely make in this post?

Fiesta Mama said:I have seen several comments recently on this thread and others regarding Americans wanting to buy property in the DR in case of a threat to the U.S. I just don't understand the logic in this thinking. First of all, if there were ever to be such a problem in the U.S. that people were fleeing the country, I would think that most countries in the world would be in for some serious trouble since s**t flows down and the U.S. is basically at the top of the world food chain. I for one would not want to be stuck on an island (especially one that is shared by TWO third world countries) when the s**t hit the fan. Sure it would be nice to be in a tropical location but that thinking would soon end when supplies started running low, gas prices went skyhigh (or worse yet, gas stopped being imported all together), medical supplies started running low, etc. Also, if there was a mass influx of foreigners to the DR who could better afford to buy up all the supplies or be able to sustain themselves than the low class Dominincans, eventually they would rebel if their lives depended on it. I predict the situation would be worse than staying put in the U.S. Just something to think about.
