I'm back. Not in the writing mood, but here goes ...

New Year's was very nice. Toasted with good friends and Champagne. Watched the fireworks on the roof. Great fireworks all over the city, especially over the Malecon. The Malecon was closed and there were stages set up. A group of us went to the park in the Colonial Zone where a DJ was pumping the music. Great vibe and beautiful people. Then it was off to bed.

Have some great pictures from Panama and Cuba that were given to me by some friends who recently visited those countries. Hope to post them in the next couple of days.

Having no curfew was great. But like most Dominicans, I had already adapted. Didn't really pay too much attention to what was going on. Heard Jay-Dee's stayed open later, and CHA was still going at 7am.

The Republic of Bangia, Isle of Men, is a new website with a unique concept and what seem to be some beautiful videos. Checkout the previews @

The President said he was going to be taking his first ride on the Santo Domingo Metro in February, 2008. The train cars arrived at port the other day. Could they be on schedule? (Photo Above)

Anthony, what is going on with Eukliptus....I just arrived home after several days and the place has horrible service and the employees are very unfriendly......the tourists are returning to Bar Friends where the prices are a little higher but you can get good service.... even Ruskin with his pleasant personality is not going to be able to save Eukliptus if they dont get improved service and attitudes......

Hey Anthony, had already seen some of the product from this mysterious "Republic of BanGia" on XTube and another site. Funny, the men were all from the Dominican Republic. Most of them from Bar Friends. The videos, under different names, but with a few of the same scenes, were just luke warm. The hottest guys in the videos only did solo scenes. And "Jake" still trying to do videos at his age and weight?
I was not impressed. LOL
