I know, I know, quite a thread title but though instead of three different threads one would do.
While I'm not interested in spending all my time in the DR in a dingy tavern watching hockey I would enjoy joining some travellers and expats in watching a gold medal game featuring, hopefully, Canada and USA. Would there be a spot in Sosua that you folks think people will gather to watch a big game like this?
Strings. On past trips to Cuba I have brought strings down to give to street performers as they had a real hard time getting new ones for their guitars. Does anyone know if strings are hard to come by for the locals in the Sosua area? Would bringing a few packages to hand out be appreciated as a special gift?
Lastly, I know rum is the drink of choice for many in the DR but I like a nice shot or two of tequila once in a while too. Is there much, decent, tequila available there or should I bring a bottle in with me. If I need to bring it in will the duty free in Newark NJ. have some good choices? Are we allowed to bring booze in?
Thanks for the answers.
