Yes indeed......and please excuse my curse word.........the fat guy you saw at the entrance was begging so agressively and actually tried to touch me and get in my way.......he came close to serious trouble.......(yellowish shirt....orange back pack)......otherwise all was really flawless and surprisingly positive. Also, I just want to add that the encounter took place outside the installation on the sidewalk, not inside at all.
You were really able to control your composure, and rebound quickly. All within one second's time. That is purely incredible.

Well, here is the thing.....I live here now for 20 plus years and not many things get under my skin anymore.......It takes me a couple of mins to sync the Gimbal and Camera and the whole time he kept bugging me......When he noticed that I was almost on my way he kicked it up a couple of noches......That was when I got upset, hence the cursing. I thought of editing it out, but however, it is reality.....I believe in no other video have I used bad language since I pride myself on being in command of an extensive vocabulary.....But sometimes: Nothing fits the situation better.

BEACH DAY/DIA EN LA PLAYA/STRANDTAG DOMINICAN REPUBLIC REPUBLICA DOMINICANA DOMINIKANISCHE REPUBLIK

Thank you again for the more complete video of Juan Dolio. As I told you before I lived there after I left Santo Domingo. It is a completely different town than what I lived in. Keep in mind I was there in the late 90's and early 2000's.
When I was there it was a resort town. Actually the street( Calle Blvd.) was dirt when I moved there. The sides of the streets were still covered with overgrowth, The horses from the cane fields walked freely on the streets to feed. The chickens ran wild. They were only talking about building condos when I left.
Quite frankly I prefer the old JD better. The beach looks improved now. I always had apartments on the other side of the street. If I lived there now I would have no view. Also, I liked it when the resorts were there. I enjoyed meeting people from different countries. I don't think the growth has helped the economy of JD. Lots of jobs lost. Not really high occupancy of the condos and restaurants closing. Such is progress I guess.
Enough of my opinion. I really do appreciate your video to show all of the changes.

Good video - thanks! I have never heard "un chin chin" for "a little". People that I know just say "un chin". "A-ce" for detergent just comes from the brand name (Ace) I think, much as toothpaste is called "Col-ga-te" (Colgate) here.

Ok, I hate the Algorithm’s. Tried to comment on Youtube but did not have the patience to figure how I could do that and still keep my privacy. How do you comment Anonymous? I do not want the Algorithm’s haunt me.
