Hi everyone. Thanks for all your help. Love this forum. Well I need some of you to give me your 2 cents. I am a single 35 year old Canadian guy and I?m planning to move to the DR in Aug of this year for business and hopefully some pleasure. I will need to set up a residence. Because of my work I need high speed Internet. I have been to the north coast and thought about going there but I?m not really a beach all the time guy. I need city life Shops, restaurants. Busy environment and the people I?m consulting for want me in Santo Domingo. Here is the problem. Never been there. My Spanish is not good enough for the north coast so I will be in trouble. I thought I would hire a personnel assistant. Someone who speak Spanish and English. Who can help me set up and show me the ropes until I?m comfortable? I?m talking about a real job and responsibilities. I?m just wondering if any of you know of someone or an agency I could contact. What would I have to pay someone to be my guide and gopher for 3 or 4 hours a day? What do you think? Is this a stupid idea? thanks for the help.
