I am an American expat living in Samana Dominican Republic for the last 7 years give or take. I have a small restaurant that could become a great point of interest for sailors looking for a clean place, good food, great prices and free Wi-Fi. Cold beer is also always on hand.

Upon cleaning everything up, luckily all bearings…See More
