Arrived in Sosua Dominican Republic

I left La Vega and took the bus directly to Sosua, Dominican Republic with stops in Santiago and Puerto Plata. Truly, this modern country is a breath of fresh air for a world traveler. This beach area appears to be a place where end-of-the-roaders come to retire.

This map shows my route, these beaches are is incredibly convenient, a person can fly into Puerto Plata and be in the hotel within an hour or two.

Sosua, Dominican Republic --- Tuesday, January 12, 2010

There are many beach areas for Expats, however few of them really have beaches worth bothering about, and they are more about shopping. I am excited; this area is truly known for surfing, the pivotal sign of good beaches.

I found and Expat Table at a place called Rockys, a restaurant where people who live or are staying long-term come to hang out. Many people, mostly men, rent apartments for months. Most appear to be Canadians or Germans; however, the whole world is here.

I rented a proper apartment for 285 dollars for 30 days, truly a good deal. Sosua, Dominican Republic is truly a home away from home city. This room serves up a Cable TV with all the biggest movie channels; I have a kitchen, full size fridge, and table, everything I could ever want for 10 dollars per day

The quality of the Expats here in Sosua appears to be great; they actually wake up in the morning and go to breakfast. They appear to be a more independent bunch, not in need of girls in tow to feel comfortable with themselves.
