    Hi to you too, I am also new this forum. Safety to me, is relative because it depends on who you talk to. I lived in the DR for about 5 years and didn't have any relative problems. I do know of people who, however, had some serious problems. So, I am sure if you talk to them you'll get a different perspective from mine. Like any other city you just have to be careful. A few years ago INS deported a few hundred thousand criminals back to the Dominican Republic so now you'll have to be even more careful.

    I presently work in Detroit and my permanent home is in Toronto and believe me, that there are places in either city that I would not go. Again, get to know the island well so that you'll use your judgement astutely.

    They have lots of baby sitters who will be more than willing to live in. A referral from a friend is usually the best. The first "trajabadora or ninera" (as they are sometimes called) stoled all my clothes but the second one worked out very well to the point where I was trying to apply for her to take care of my mother in Canada. Again, they are just like anyone anywhere else in the world.

    Hopefully this shed some light into your questions. I am sure there are other experiences out there.
