G.A.L.D.E. Picnic Photos

Here are some photos that were sent to me by the great Francisco "Cisco" Lazala, founder of G.A.L.D.E. They had over 1700 visitors to the 16th annual picnic under the George Washington Bridge. Another one of the things that I miss about NYC.

Also, went to Gameworks at MegaCentro on Tuesday night. WOW! It was great. The place was packed with the most beautiful men and women in all of Santo Domingo. It was sort of like an after work soiree in the States.

Dominican airport security has introduced the new stricter limits on carry-on items following the foiled terror plot on aircraft flying from Britain to the United States. Effective as of yesterday by order of Cuerpo Especializado de Seguridad Aeroportuaria (CESA), the airport security department, passengers may not carry liquid or gel containers of any size at the screening checkpoint or in the aircraft cabin. This includes alcohol, other beverages, shampoo, suntan lotion, creams, toothpaste, hair gel and other items of similar consistency. Such items may be transported in checked baggage.

Passengers may still have baby formula, breast milk or juice if a baby or small child is traveling. Prescription medicines along with a prescription slip bearing a name that matches the passenger's ticket/passport are also permitted, along with insulin and essential other non-prescription medicines.

Beverages purchased in the sterile area must be consumed before boarding the aircraft. Airport authorities advise to not bring liquids to the airports of the Dominican Republic as they will be confiscated by security. All airports in the DR and other worldwide locations are affected.
Passengers are urged to travel with as few carry on items as possible in order to expedite the screening process and facilitate travel.

With the additional security measures, passengers will undergo more extensive screenings and are required to be at the airport for check-in three hours before departure.

Pretty much it seems that most Americans are going to stop traveling by air since there are so many issues with these terrorists.

Police jail hundreds
The police have announced that 829 of the 2,373 people who were detained have been sent to jail for further investigation because they "had pending issues with the Justice Department". During the 18 days since the issue of the Presidential decrees that limited the sale of liquor, increased police presence on the streets and included military elements for foot patrols, there has been a decrease in criminal activity, according to a police press release. The Chief of Police, Bernardo Santana Paez, said that of the 2,373 people detained, some 500 have been cleared, 829 were sent to jail because of pending issues, and the rest are still under investigation. According to El Caribe, the police have carried out 2,400 car searches, and 71 vehicles have been seized for lack of proper documentation. The report also lists the weapons, motorcycles and drugs caught up in the sweeps. courtesy of DR.

Eddie said...

I applaud you Anthony for not getting caught up in this. I don't think I would have been as rational. Those are such viscous comments. Pure racist and homophobic rhetoric! And they come from some bitch-ass "anonymous" punk who doesn't have the balls to post their own name!

DRama Vacations said...

Thanks Bahian Heat for the news update on arrests and seizures in the DR as a result of the new decree. I wonder how many people in the underworld have gotten caught up in this? The word on the street is that a taxi driver who work with gays, was seen with his wife and a buggaron spread up against a wall on Independence Ave. and since then he has been without a taxi, maybe his was one of those undocumented cars that got taken. Word in the buggaron circles is that a buggaron had his apartment in Luparon raided and everything inside seized, including tv, computer, radio, motorcycle, furniture and the cops found extacy, cocaine and pot in the apartment. Some of the buggarons say he is facing up to 5 years in jail for selling drugs. I'm just visiting for vacation and it really is DRama here. The buggarons gossip more than the gay children on this island. And the gay dominicans know everthing about everyone. Remember, telephone, telegraph, tell a gay dominican sissy.

Whatever happened to Cabarete Gay Pride?

Monaga said...

Cabarete Gay Pride was some nonsense that was made up to try and seduce folks to go to the north coast. It didn´t seem very professional and I don´t think anything came of it.

Anyone know anything about it?

Somehow, I doubt it!

Does any anyone know if there are any gay bars or clubs in Santiago.

Thanks Dan

TO: Mario Sessions, you may think you’re part of the solution…. However you are acting just like those nasty uneducated folks. And you are becoming part of the problem. If you were a good business man, one would think you would spend your time promoting business. And stop promoting the disservice that others are taking part in. I am sure you are a good business man, but when you take part in these feud, between the “Hatfield’s and the McCoy’s” you wind up looking like them. And we all know, they know nothing about business. Further they don’t even respect there host country.

As a Black businessman myself, we are all trying to grow and prosper. Don’t let the alcohol take away from all your hard work and accomplishments (this is in reference to your last comments were you had said you were drinking and you grammar showed that). Others will see this and magnify this behavior. Is this what you really want do. I have never met you and I admire your ontipernerial sprit, but please think about what I am saying.

This website MONAGA, could really be the place to go for all, as there are no news papers there to inform the gay community or those abroad what events will place, along with places to go and visit. Instead the owner of MONAGA and the owner of Bar Friends and their segregates would rather promote this feud than promote any real business.

Thanks

Very well put. I just pray that Mario will take to heart what you've said.

Eddie said...

To the anonymous poster who thinks he's "educating" Mario,

How can you try "educating" (reading) someone about not being a good businessman when your grammar, spelling, punctuation and verb tenses are all over the damn place? True, when we post to blogs we do so informally and proper English is not always necessary, but you are posting about someone not being able to write properly. You obviously don't even know all the hideous errors you made in your own writing. Further, you have never even met the man! So pathetic. Why don't you try learning how to properly express the English language and get back to us?

And if you want to try reading someone, don't be a punk and hide behind anonymity.

Eddie said...

I'm sorry but I have to add something else. That anonymous poster above is just too much.

As for your snide references about Anthony not respecting his host country, you are so wrong. I know Anthony personally, and I know that is not true. Anthony loves the Dominican Republic and it's people and genuinely respects them.

I'm done now.

Eddie....... "genuinely respects them". Why not respect them, all the time. As that last person wrote what you said was just pure Bull Sit.

Oh, I'm so sorry, it should read, Eddie you are also right, writer about Mario, your grammar is Bad. But there you go, it goes to show that no one is perfect, as I left out the word "you" from my last blog comment.

I know most of you bitches don't respect the dominicans or the dominican republic. You want dick and this was the cheapest place near the east coast to get it. Now with the peso as low as it is and prices so high, you cheap ass queens are looking for new lands to infest. Respect, what is that? You black americans don't respect the boys, you just want trade. the dominicans don't respect the tourist, they just want the money. The clients don' respect the businessowners, they just want everything for as cheap or for free. The police don't respect civil rights, they just want to get paid. The church don't respect the gays, they just want all the homo's expelled from the colonial zone, so they can have all the trade for themselves. So what is respect? This is bull shit. You all need to leave Anthony the fuck alone and let him live his live the way he sees fit. You all are hateful and should be banished.

Anonymous said...

Hater, Hater... You know nothing about grammar. I am sure you spent the last four hours taping those few words together. And even then, what a bunch of crap.

Anonymous said...

Boys Boys can't we all just get along so what if some of us can't spell correctly does that make us stupid and a bad person. First of all Anthony is a great guy why are you bow beating him for having the guts to live his life they way he see's fit. Secondly he is doing something you all don't have the big balls to do move to another country so stop hating and give that brother some love and respect. Anthony has been nothing but a gracious host everytime I'm in SD and is very helpful. People who live in glass houses should not throw stones!!

Monaga said...

I have just resigned myself to the notion that you can't please everyone.

I was just thinking about how I'm going through "bloggers" block, and I have to find a way to come back to blogging on a regular basis. But, it will be on my own terms and desires.

One point to those who seem to have so much criticism of Mario. Why not just ignore his posts?

Just a thought.

Eddie said...

No, I was not drunk. I was completely sober when I wrote, and I’m sober now. As for your second sentence. I'm dumb? Again, you're trying to read someone about being "dumb," and your one little sentence is full of grammatical errors. I won't bother to correct the obvious. Who's dumb here? Thanks for blatantly proving my point!

And someone else posted that “just because we can’t spell, doesn’t mean we’re dumb.” Yes, it does. If you live in the U.S., public school education is free to anyone who wants to attend. Even adult education is free to those who want to learn No school supplies or uniforms required. Yes, everyone makes errors when writing, but if you can’t spell most of what you write, you are DUMB!

I won’t be posting again. So come for me if you want, you anonymous punk bitch.. You’ll be talking to a closed door. Anthony, I wish you all the best with whatever you decide to do with YOUR blog.
