Well we finally arrived. We have been living here since 14th August and so much has happened. Our plan to rent for a year went out the window when we found the perfect villa in Costambar at a price we couldn't refuse. Moved in three weeks later and things couldn't be better. Met loads of friends of all nationalities, all of whom have been most helpful. Thank you all and we hope we can return the favours in the future. Spending our time personalizing the house and garden and coming to terms with the Dominican ways. No turning back now but loving it.
