Sometime ago ; my problem is that I like to live as they say in DR with “YO VIVO CON LA GENTE” which translate I live in the nice neighborhood; So I move in on a rich neighborhood which it was beyond my means ( LOS JARDINES METROPOLITANOS/ santiago ) …. So I got behind on my rents and the rest you can imagine ; I move back to the states where I could live rent free ( sister’s house )


Anyways now am moving back to DR , with a better understanding of my budget ( low budget ) and hope for the best


PS… anyone else here a VETERAN?
So, you're going to live in Piantini? Behind in "your rents", reason for the Impedimente de Salido"?

After reading the thread 2 or 3 times, could Rey be the old chic with a new name and IP address.
Not to disrespect Rey but you sound an awful lot like chic. I thought chic was an absolute hilarious and entertaining poster here.
Either way, keep up the good life and keep us informed

Now that you mention it ..... 🤣🤣🤣🤣

But I recall chic being even more " all over the place " style of writing...... perhaps only in my memory though.

yeah I hear also that PN sometimes be in complexity with the police , according to NURIA NEWS
I'm beginning to think this is not a native English speaker.
Perhaps a mom's basement troll looking for attention or some other alterior motive?

NEVER BEING ON A FORUM DEDICATED TO DR ….

I have a lovely bridge to sell that would compliment your new home.

PS: "PN" and "Police" are the same thing!

Well never cross the bridges, La Yaguita de Pastor and La otra Banda are not for tourists.

Yes or No ,,,, YALL may elaborate Your answers


It seems to me that santiago crime rate / DELICUENCIA in the year 2022 it’s the worst it’s being ever… DO YOU ALL AGREE ?
This year we've been going to Santiago a lot during different times of the day, even at night, and I've been surprised. I honestly thought we would have to be looking over our shoulders. For instance, I thought that monument area would be dark and dangerous, but In the evening there are lots of people relaxing, walking or doing aerobics, families and couples hanging out, taking pictures. Restaurants are also active with lots of people. There are lots of vendors trying to sell you stuff, and people begging, but that's pretty much it.
Having said that, I do agree that crime has increased and that you should always be aware of your surroundings.

The userame "rey" was created Jan. 2, 2007, 16 years ago as of this coming January.

"Sock Puppet" in hibernation.
He is Legit ...he posts sporadically , perhaps awkward, but he is no sock puppet .. I can sniff them out pretty good , if I do say so myself.
Very few guys know when to properly use the term " Battle buddy"..
He may even be special forces . I highly doubt he came here to DR1 to steal some valor .

thank you for your Service RAY ..

Rey,

Where in the states are ya’ll from?

I say ya’ll because you mentioned a roommate.
Where someone is from it’s a subject to interpretation, are we from where we grew up or we from here where we at or is it where you going , or even better where your parents roots are from , or if you wanted get historically where your ancestor where taken in slavery by the European conquerors….

BUT the short answer to your question is YONKERS , USA 🇺🇸

Not trying to go off-topic but I think we are going to start seeing a lot less crime in the center of the city in the not too distant future. Abinader is from here and he doesn't want to see this city turn into another Santo Domingo. Lots of good things are being planned and happening across this city as speak.
