I am tired of the Caribbean attitude that says,
"I am doing you a favor when I talk to you."
New York Urban Ghetto or Rap Clothing is common in Sosua, Dominican Republic.

Rains Too Much
Drizzle, there are three days of rain drizzle per week here in Sosua, I believe it is the same in Cabarete. I think there is a special weather environment that sits on this region of Dominican Republic that makes beach life here difficult. Generally, in Tropical areas, it rains often, but only for an hour, then it stops and the sun comes out, while here in Sosua it rains all day.
This is ok for a person who sits in the bar all day buying girls, not for me.
Third World Mentality
Overall, there is a third world mentality here in Sosua, at first world cost, or more. I am never sure about the Expatriates in other countries, they make me nervous. The ones that wander from country to country seem to be the over-achievers, while the ones that live on one location were the under-achievers in their home country. They moved to a third world mentality country like Dominican Republic where they can be a big fish in a little pond. Whereby, their ability to speak English gives them a huge business advantage over the locals.
I on the other hand get truly annoyed when I am in Hotel, Restaurant, Real Estate, Travel Agent or other services offered by Expatriates, and provide third world service. My guesstimate is that Foreigners own 30 percent of the businesses in Sosua, and these businesses seldom give better service than the local people do. They employ local and allow them to treat clients like,’
"I am doing you a favor by talking to you."
I will fly from Santiago, Dominican Republic to Guatemala City, where the family atmosphere of Guatemala is not third world, or at least they pull up their pants, and I do not have to look at their butt crack.
Sosua, the place where Tramp Stamp Tattoo are common, a nice sunny spot for shady people, and finding a nice family girls is hunting for a needle in a haystack.
