Mucho Mauro

Mauro was one of my favorite models during my visits to Santo Domingo. So sweet and so guapo. As dedicated to health and wellness as he was back then I'm sure he's still a head turner.

Antigua Carnival


 ST. JOHN’S, Antigua and Barbuda – 25th April 2018…….The Antigua and Barbuda Festivals Commission has tweaked its 2018 carnival schedule.
In a meeting that included Minister for Festivals the Hon. Daryll Matthew, members of the calypso association headed by Eugene Silcott, Soca Monarch chairperson Herbert ‘Burga’ Joseph, Calypso chairperson Dion Simmons, soca artistes Menace, Tian Winter and Claudette Peters and chaired by Festivals Commission Chairperson Maurice Merchant; the grouping addressed issues to include private fetes, the calypso and soca monarch competitions, marketing, panorama, prize monies and the format of the various competitions during carnival.

In the interest of providing the best possible programme for visitors and local patrons, the grouping consented to switching the days for the Caribbean Melting Pot show and the Calypso Monarch competition.  The Caribbean Melting Pot show will now be held on Thursday 2nd August and the calypso monarch competition on Friday August 3.


The new carnival schedule will see Panorama held on a Saturday and the Soca Monarch competition on a Sunday.

New Rules


dr1.com:
As of 25 April 2018 airline tickets sold for flights to the Dominican Republic will include the US$10 tourist card charge. The airlines are now designated to collect the fees on behalf of the Tax Agency (DGII). This will reduce the long lines at entry airports in the D.R. and make for a better experience for the visitors.

Tickets sold in the Dominican Republic will not include the tourist card charge. Airline tickets purchased by in transit passengers are also exempt.

Tax Agency General Norm 08-2018 also establishes that Dominicans, residents in the Dominican Republic, and accredited diplomats and foreign consular staff can request a refund at DGII designated offices and online at the DGII website if the request is placed within the 30 days of the issuing of the paid ticket.

Panama:Another Look


Around Calle Uruguay is a nice area to stay in the modern part of the city. There are fancy bars, clubs and restaurants to visit daily. 
The Casco Viejo is the old town, and is very relaxing. There are also many restaurants and terraces. Many of the old buildings are still waiting for restoration (badly),there are only few hotels yet.





Panama City has about 4 gay clubs and a gay sauna / bathhouse, and several mixed and gay friendly places. The gay night life is mostly focused on Friday and Saturday. One mainstream club has a gay night on Wednesday. 

Addresses in Panama are usually descriptive, they usually don't have house numbers, but refer to an intersection or describe some more popular building behind it. Sometimes it can be hard explaining the location you want to a taxi driver, so prepared and write the address.
Many guys from Panama are not openly gay, some prefer to go to the gay friendly places instead.
Before going somewhere make sure to check if the place is still open. In Panama venues tend to change owners rapidly.
Shopping
The biggest shopping mall is Albrook. It is on 2 levels and seems never ending. Closer to the main area is a smaller shopping mall called MultiCentro, connected to the Hard Rock hotel.
