Boston fans cheer David Ortiz
With a powerful swing of the bat in the eighth inning, David Ortiz secured a Red Sox 7-3 victory over the New York Yankees with a three-run home run into the bullpen on Monday night. As reported in the Major League Baseball Boston Red Sox web site, when the game was over, the sellout crowd at Fenway Park "was doing what it loves most: cheering David Ortiz." The Dominican slugger delivered a three-run shot in the eighth, to finish off a four-run inning for the Red Sox, who won the first meeting of the season over the Yankees.
Dominicans win Billboard Latin Music Awards
Dominican performers Andy Andy, Aventura and Luny Tunes won Billboard Latin Music Awards at the event finale. The ceremony took place on 27 April at the Hard Rock Live in Hollywood, Florida and aired on Telemundo.
The producer of the year award went to the reggaeton production team of Luny Tunes, the first time a reggaeton producer nabs that honor. Luny Tunes produced and wrote "Mayor Que Yo," which also won the newly created reggaeton track of the year award. Billboard said that the 2006 awards sent a clear message that the Latin audience has accepted new sounds, from reggaeton to rock to progressive tropical music.
Andy Andy won awards in three categories. His "Que Ironia" (Wepa/Urban Box Office) won Tropical Album Of The Year, Male, Tropical Album Of The Year, New Artist and Tropical Airplay Song Of The Year, Male.
Aventura won the Tropical Album Of The Year, Duo Or Group for "God's Project" (Premium Latin/Sony BMG Norte).
The Billboard Latin Music Awards honor the most popular albums, songs and performers in Latin music, determined by the actual sales and radio airplay data that informs Billboard's weekly charts during a one-year period ending with the 5 February issue.
Where the tourists are coming from
During the first quarter of 2006, tourists residing in the United States made up the majority of all nationalities visiting the DR. Central Bank statistics indicate that 296,963 US tourists arrived. March was the peak month for US tourists for the start of the year, with 87,206 coming to escape the cold. Tourists coming from Canada were next, with 257,596 tourists from January to March. From Europe some 111,853 French tourists arrived. These were followed by 66,056 from Germany, 46,078 from the UK, 45,306 from Spain and 42,575 from Italy. During the first quarter of the year, the Central Bank reported that 987,599 foreign tourists visited.
Sivory makes Conde Nast list
The Punta Cana area newcomer, the 55-suite Sivory boutique hotel has just made Conde Nast Traveler's 2006 Hot List for the top 130 new hotels on the market starting 2006. Only three hotels in the Caribbean were chosen. Others were in Grand Cayman and St. Barts. Conde Nast writes that "the hotel stands out among Punta Cana's mega all-inclusives for its understated elegance and restorative tranquility - there's not an activities board, kids club, casino or swim up bar in sight." The descriptive brief adds: "Even the small gym, tacked away beside the spa, is positioned so as not to induce stress among guests by suggesting that they should actually use it. And the formula seems to be working. The pool area and private beach are typically as animated as the surrounding shrubbery, an occasional swat at sand flies notwithstanding. Rooms have all the requisite high-tech toys and bathrooms are a sybarite's dream. The resort's three menus, created by chef Francois Bouvet, who helmed a Michelin-starred restaurant in Brittany, specialize in French, Mediterranean and Asian cuisine, and the 8,000-bottle wine cellar is especially strong in Spanish varietals.
