So I look back to the days when I've been thinking about coming to Dominican Republic. I got my goals, expectations and plans. And now I laugh from them - as dominican reality crashed them all.

They are like whole population - they want more & more, dont appreciate what they have and they go crazy when they see newest mobile phone model. Well, most of them. Like 95 % ? This is America, not Asia....

Now he asks me for "entrance fee of 25 pesos", which is total bullshit and nonsense here, as this place is totally free. So I tell him that I wont pay anything as its free swimming pool for everybody. Guy is surprised once again and doesnt know what to do. Finally I gave him 10 pesos, just to get rid of him.

Afer swimming, when I am ready to leave some other guy approaches me. But this guy looks [ more...]
