In the last glory days of POP I worked at the resorts on the north side. Most catered to Butlins class British tourists (no disrespect) and Canadians looking for a bang for the buck deal in the sun. Many resorts had little to no reinvestment, with a noticeable lack of maintenance. When they moved me to PUJ, it was like a luxury-class destination in comparison. PUJ was built from the ground up to be a moderate to upscale location. Like it or not, it has been a great success and it continues to grow. As a resort destination, POP and the North have to figure out what they want to reinvent themselves as. So far, all I see is a little bit here and a little bit there, with no real blueprint.

That being said, I always enjoy my weekend getaways to the northside!

I'm surprised they don't have crews out and about today filling potholes in anticipation of his visit.

Got to see him driving by in Montellano along with Mayoral candidate Héctor Almonte.
No worries about potholes as Abinader was mounted in a Bronco some others in Jeep's.... Viva USA jeepetas!

When did the POP glory days end?
