Welcome to Monaga's World

Welcome to the first post of the Monaga blog. What I aim to do is share my perspective on living here in Santo Domingo, along with opinions about any number of issues. I'm an American who is also Black & Gay. I first came to Santo Domingo in 1990 with one of my best friends, Lyle Agard. I did not come back again until November of 2000. I then came every 3 months, until I moved here in January 2004.

I now live near the Colonial Zone of Santo Domingo and run a small guesthouse that caters to a mostly gay clientele, though we have straight clients as well. Running a business in the DR is very, very (!) different than in the States. But, no regrets about moving here. I love it, though you have to get used to things being done differently. Adapt or die is my motto.
