Hello Friends, I'm Scutter, an American, living in Minneapolis MN. Ever Since I was Young, back in Grade School, I read an article about the Dominican Republic...I said then , I want to live their some day. Now is my time, Maybe...I have saved up enough money to Live in Santo Domingo,..I want to live with and around the Dominican Culture...THIS IS MY QUESTION FOR ALL, Can I Live, on what I've saved...If I stay a year in Santo Domingo, I Have a TIGHT BUDGET! Almost 600.00 U.S. dollars a month..(Around $590.00). Can I Live Safe and Semi-Comfortably.My lifestyle: I want to learn Spanish from the local Dominican's, I want to shop in the veg., fruit Markets, I'm Vegeterian, and I need to Live Cheap. Can I Find a Decent Studio Apt., or small 1 bdrm, in Santo Domingo, DOES NOT HAVE to be the best neighborhood...safe at least, with caution.? I want to also experience the Night Life, Culture,which would of course include some sight seeeing expenses, and money for going out to some Clubs, if I choose! I also need to buy prescriptions, and see a Dr. Once and a while. I also need Cable News, TV, (COST?)Can I find a livabable apt. for U.S. $100.00, or less?Will I have enough Money to eat at Home/APT., and go out sometimes?? I Like Living in the Central City. Can I Live in Santo Domingo, as I've Described above, on a Budget of $600.00 U.S. Thanks for Any and all INFO.....Scutter.
