    In Jarabacoa in the past month there have been two women critically injured on motos. One was at fault and the other wasn't, but in the end it makes no difference to their health.

I have no idea why it should be impossible to have lights that woirk on my car, but it is beyond anybody here. They have chaged the transformers 3 times. The 5th time I had someone fix them he charged me 2500 pesos and the cost was the transformers again. He became huffy when I took the old ones with me. I asked him how long he expected the lights to last and he said for years. When I came back in 3 weeks and they weren't working he said there is no guarantee on electrical stuff. So don't get your hopes for a guarantee.

    i have said, repeatedly, that things do not get repaired here. they get fixed. if, as in your case, your lights fail, the guy can trace the element that causes the failure, such as the transformer. what he cannot trace is the reason why the transformer keeps failing. he does not think about components upstream, which damage the transformer. maybe that is by design, so it will break every 2 weeks, and you keep blowing money on it, providing income for his brethren. the other possibility is that he just does not understand the circuit, and how it works.

    I thought the girls in Sosua are used to walking more than the average Dominican since it is a small beach town.

    Unless you're living with her, the chances are good she'll sell it the first chance she gets, then say it was stolen. I hate to be jaded, but I once got a girl a new iron and she said it "broke" within three days after I got it for her.

    Come to think it, I was staying with the girl at the time, so all bets are off..

    When I read 'scooter store' I thought you meant something like Electric Wheelchairs, Motorized Wheelchair, Mobility Scooters | The SCOOTER Store

    I'm either watching too much television, or getting old

    Ok.

    In Charamicos, there's a pawn shop owned by a guy named Victor. He's the one who charters fishing trips on Sosua Beach. It's the nicest in Sosua, everyone knows it. That store has everything, including pasolas.

    While you're in there, look closely. Victor's shop has two kinds of inventory:

    1) Stuff that was stolen from tourists who weren't paying attention; and

    2) Regalos given to chicas by their foreign boyfriends (this is the majority of their items).

    The salesperson will likely be able to tell you all about the scooter, as it's probably been through the store more than once.

    Just sayin'....

    you are not being jaded. you are telling it like it is. then again, the way it is is what makes you jaded. i have had my cellphone for 8 years. changed one battery. still works like new. ask any chica how old her cellphone is. that will make you jaded.
