Santo Domingo's Sans Souci Tourist Port is ready for its January 2009 inauguration. The first phase, the Don Diego port has been remodeled and a new terminal was built on the eastern side. The port project also includes the dredging of the Ozama River in order to accommodate the large cruise ships that call at Santo Domingo. Sans Souci Port Executive Director Luis Molina told Listin Diario that when the Don Diego port operation began in 2006, they received 40,000 cruise ship passengers in that first year. The 2007-2008 season has ended with more than twice that number, 82,000. He forecast that the 2008-2009 season would bring 125,000 passengers. Work on the port continues and the plans are for capacity to receive 9,000 cruise ship passengers per day. The next phase involves the relocation of the Navy Base in order to prepare the way for high rises, a project that will change the Santo Domingo skyline, with 2,500 units planned. The master plan consists of mixed residential and commercial use, starting by mid-2010. "We want to develop Sans Souci as an entertainment venue within Santo Domingo," he said. A large open commercial plaza will host restaurants, and a 1,000-seat amphitheater is also planned. "The idea is to create a walkable part of the city. Avenida Espana will border the project, becoming a well-lit boulevard with kiosks.

Associated Press reports that sand along some of the caribbeans beaches is disappearing at alarming rates as theives feed a local construction boom. The sand is favored in creating smooth surfaces for plastering and finishing and is being hauled off by the truckload late at night.
Some towns and areas are now exposed to tidal surges and rough seas. Among the hardest hit is Grenada, where officials are building a US $1.2 million dollar seawall to protect the 131 suare-mile island.
One of the regions largest sand thefts targeted Jamaica, where nearly 100 truckloads were swiped from private property in the northwest, exposing protected mangroves and a limestone forest to wind and waves. Police have refused to comment.
Joseph Gilbert, minister of works and environment in Grenada, says "If we continue to mine the beaches the way we've been doing, we will have no sand to boast about. Just sea and sun."

After making a telephone call he offered to fly Iran and I to Rio for a week to do a photoshoot. There was no need to think it over because the dates would coincide with our anniversary. How awesome that is! I looked at Iran to see if he had any doubts, since he was to be the "new discovery." He was cool and confident and gave me an I can't wait look. (He seems to have exhibitionist tendencies anyway.)
We had a great time in Rio and everyone at the studio said this is sure to be one of the hottest issues.

"Change has come to America" was the theme of his acceptance speech. As Barack Obama prepares to take office as the next president of the United States people around the world are sharing in the hope that he expresses for our country. Many continue to view the US as the land of opportunity but began to question whether we could ever extend opportunities to all people. The resounding answer, as evident by this election, is YES WE CAN.
