    Reminds me of those days i'd dream of riding on a airplane, lol.

    If you considering getting a real job/ insurance services, banking, etc.

    Also it makes you more settled in the mind. Don't you think??

    I'd like to know how many people living here lead "normal" lives, ie work and have families. I wouldn't be surprised if it's less than 5%.

    why become a resident? The government makes it a pain and the benefits are next to nothing. Applied for residence, got temporary, realized it was not even worth the drive to the capital and let it expire. The government in the DR is not concerned with helping anyone but themselves. Politicans enter public service to steal every dollar possible from the poor people who elected them and thereby get rich.

    working and having a family doesn't automatically equate to normalcy

    What is your definition of a normal live, as you describe yours? Definitely not normal for me!

    So once a person is retired he is abnormal?

    Just add a few more restricting parameters and you could probably bring the total down to one. Then you could be in a class by yourself, Chip. That should make you very happy.
