Expat Ladies meet regularly for Lunch

Once again the ladies meet for lunch and this time at the Waterfront Restaurant in Sosua.  Once a month a group get together without the men to enjoy a leisurely lunch.

  

Organized by Carole Read, this very successful outing provides an ideal opportunity to get together and meet new and old friends.

We have baby turtles!

Last night 30 baby turtles hatched from the first nest on the beach, more are due from the second nest. 

Further along the beach, another 70 or so eggs hatched from a less rare turtle who had made her nest in the heart of kitesurfing territory.

Cabarete certainly has something for everyone!

Unbalanced Press Reporting in UK

Angela Hills, head of Health, Safety and Operational Support at the Federation of Tour Operators (FTO) says that British newspapers aren't publishing relevant tourist information provided by the Dominican Tourism promotion office in London. She added that in cases where information is provided, it is relegated to the back page of the papers. Hills said that when bad news happens it is then plastered on the front page of the newspapers. Dominican ambassador to Great Britain Anibal de Castro has also spoken out about the increasing negative press the DR is receiving in the British press. Hills added that most of the reports in British papers are attributed to ambulance chasing lawyers who want to represent travelers who might have fallen ill while in the DR. Last year the DR received 225,157 British tourists, many of whom return year after year.  Whilst there is no room for complacency, many of the "dodgy tummies" etc. can be attributed to over-indulgence in the all inclusive resorts and/or too much sun.
