A Traveler in Sosua Dominican Republic

Yesterday, I paid the rent for another month here in Sosua, Dominican Republic, I suspect I will be here for 30 more days, but I am never sure, I am not a tourist.
(If you are a tourist, Shooo!, get out of here, you are on the wrong site.)



People I meet in Sosua ask,
"When are you leaving?
I buy one-way plane tickets, and cannot answer this question.
I would say,
"I do not know."
Which begets the next question?
"Do you live here in Sosua?"
I say,
"No."

I have confused the person, they want to understand, and they think I am being devious and evasive, that is not my goal. I search for an answer that will give closure.
I say,
"I am a traveler."
The people say to themselves,
"So am I."

Notes on my Frustration
Regular readers know I am frustrated, angry, full of rage, I think I am angry with myself. I created this huge mess, and I need to untangle it.

I do not want readers to read this Blog looking for Tourist information,



The circular conversation above is the pivotal problem that causes me to become frustrated. When I write on this Travel Journal, I am talking to tourist, I am trying to teach them to travel forever, and they only want to go on vacation. The tourist need to leave, and the dreamers need to come on board.

The first impression of this site needs to be about going to Haiti, Iraq, searching for un-contacted tribes and the enjoyment of culture. Danger, Violence, Challenge and all the other off the wall things I love to do, then somehow explain, like a Hobo, we need to jump out of our skin and become what we dream about, not what we are told is acceptable.

Today I am Sosua.
Tomorrow, I do not know.

We all start to write a book of about our lives, and somehow live another.

Do you want to be a Traveler? I suspect your answer is no, therefore I am confused what I am doing…
