Honestly, I have wanted to update the blog ever since the day after Thanksgiving. But, problems with the Internet prevented me from updating. Even my Vonage connection was fucked. All seems to be well now. I hope.
Thanksgiving (an American holiday) here was very nice. Ever since David Lee left, there had been a void in my social set about what to do come holiday time. This year I decided I would try and step in and fill the void. I decided that the best thing to do was to have a potluck dinner. Everyone would bring a dish. I was not disappointed. I even ventured to make a couple of pumpkin pies, thanks to a recipe by Paula Deen. And they turned out quite nice, thank you very much. Great time was had by all.
The weather has changed and it is now quite breezy at night. To the point that I am seeing people with semi-heavy jackets on. I even saw a well-dressed woman with a fur stole (imitation?). I LOVE this weather, so I am still out there with short sleeves and flip flops. I do admit that a couple of nights ago I had to turn the ceiling fan off and put an extra sheet on the bed, as it was quite chilly. Nothing like the Caribbean changing of the seasons.
I have been inundated with news about a new hotel in Bavaro/Punta Cana that is supposed to be gay friendly. It is called the Bavaro Rainbow Hotel. I don't know who is behind this hotel and don't know if it is legitimate or not. What I do know is that Dominican Gay Tours & Travel is afilliated with this venture. Regular readers of the blog know that there has been some discrepancy with this company and its practices. Click here to see what I wrote about them in July of this year. Here is my suggestion, DO NOT send them cash to them through MoneyGram or Western Union, pay with a credit card ONLY. This way if there is a problem your credit card company will refund your money. I am interested to find out if anyone has stayed there?
