Tried heading to Santiago this morning but ran into a strike just outside of Maimon with big fires, trees across the road, glass everywhere and many gun shots. Any idea what this is about? Will try to head back down tomorrow and would appreciate if anyone could tell me if it is passable later today. THanks....tom

Huelga time. Looks like not all the locals got work on the new pier. 85 million just might turn into a low ball price. Who saw this coming.

The protest has to do with a youth who was killed by the police in Puerto Plata last night. Absolutely NOTHING to do with the cruise port.
