Take Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic - Off your possible travel destinations

I have been to the DR several times, usually went to the north shore in the Cabarete area which is the kite surfing capital of the world, just beautiful, safe, tropical, waterfalls, horseback exploring.

Well I thought this time I would check out the capital of DR, Santo Domingo which is the oldest city in the Americas, wanted to hang with locals...good lord, don't bother and not worth it. Old churches and buildings just suck. Poverty is overwhelming. But I rented an apartment for a month here, so here I am stuck, if I find anything cool I'll post, even felt uncomfortable taking pics.

If you want to see cool European old style churches in South America go to Cuenca, Ecuador, unbelievable, cheap and safe. Plus you can visit the Amazon Basin and Galapagos if you wish.

PS Only good thing is my apartment has WIFI and digital TV, no AC thou but tolerable. Some channels even in English even watched the debate last night.
