At 8pm, walking Pedro Clisante with POLITUR present at every corner chasing prostitutes, bars open and restaurants open and colmados open, the new big supermarket open, and barber shops and hair salons at every corner still humming, that street is bustling with people. Anywhere up to the point of Velvet Cafe (deputy mayor's place) is as safe as an American can be in DR at that time of evening. And I'm before Velvet Cafe.I think both of you are pressing your luck. Take a moto.
Plus I NEVER get on a moto. It's walk or drive for me.
If it rains or I think it's going to rain then I drive home or if I left vehicle at home, wife will come pick me up.
