The night of the art galleries in Santo Domingo
The Santo Domingo Association of Art Galleries (AGA) presents the annual Circuit of Galleries from August to December. Member art galleries, including most of the country's most prestigious, join forces to organize evening events and encourage Dominicans and visitors alike to drop by. Mildred Canahuate of Galeria de Arte Arawak says that starting Thursday, 18 August, a selection of leading art galleries will stay open until 10:30pm every third Thursday in the month. This year around 100 exhibitions are planned, with artists like Ramon Oviedo and Cuban Leticia Sanchez Toledo. There will be performances, video-art, music and live shows.
Juan Jose Mesa, owner of the Mesa Fine Art Gallery, says that the event is open to everyone, even people with no intention of buying art. "If later they are bitten by the art collecting bug, that would be wonderful," he comments, as reported in Listin Diario. He stresses that art has no social class.
ASONAHORES' 25th Trade Show
This year, the National Hotel & Tourism Association celebrates the 25th year of its annual trade show. The event will once more take place at the Dominican Fiesta Hotel & Casino's Convention Center facilities. The dates are 31 August to 3 September. This year there will be a special focus on Brugal & Company. The company was family owned until Edrington of Scotland recently purchased the company to take it to new markets.
American Eagle to connect Casa de Campo
American Eagle announces the resumption of flights from San Juan's Luis Munoz Marin International Airport into the La Romana International Airport Casa de Campo. Flights commence as of 18 November, with a twice-weekly frequency. American Eagle will be using ATR-72 64-seater aircraft for the flight. The schedule of Flight 4828 will be departures from San Juan on Fridays and Sundays at 12:25pm and arriving in La Romana at 1:25pm. Flight 4829 will depart from La Romana on Fridays and Sundays at 2pm, arriving in San Juan at 3pm.
The flight is especially convenient for resort-bound tourists: thanks to La Romana airport's central location they can be on the beach around an hour after arrival.
Peter Dolara, first vice president of American Airlines for Mexico, the Caribbean and Latin America made the announcement together with Claudio Silvestri, chief executive officer of Premier Resorts, operator of Casa de Campo.
Hurricane Season monitoring
The likelihood of being caught in a hurricane in the Dominican Republic is statistically very low. The last hurricane to hit the island was in 1998, and before that in 1979. Historically, the only hurricane to affect the Dominican Republic in August was Hurricane David, a category 5 storm, precisely on the last day of the month, 31 August in 1979. September is usually the month to watch for hurricanes in the DR.
As the peak days approach, Dominicans have been surprised by a possible hurricane early in the month, to be named Emily.
This year, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) forecast fewer named storms for the Caribbean. NOAA predicted a maximum of 18 storms, down from last year's maximum of 23.
DR1 has compiled a weather page and a hurricane page to equip Dominicans and visitors alike with background information, what to expect in a hurricane, and links to pages with weather information as it relates to the Dominican Republic for following online.
