Santo Domingo is the oldest city in the New World and was founded by Christopher Columbus and his younger brother, Bartolomé Colón, in 1496. The part of the city inhabited at the beginning of the 16th century is called Zona Colonial (Colonial Zone in Spanish). The Colonial Zone boasts many firsts for the New World. The first paved street, university, cathedral, castle, monastery, hospital and fortress, to name a few. With beautiful architecture and rich history, the Colonial Zone is a must-see while visiting Santo Domingo. The Colonial Zone has been classified as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

In the Colonial Zone, next to the beauty of the historic buildings, you will find: hotels, restaurants, cafes, museums, bars, shops, etc. The two most famous streets in the Colonial Zone are Calle Las Damas (the women’s street) and Calle Conde. Las Damas street was the street that women of high society walked after church for lunch. Calle Las Damas is an amazing street during the day, but it gets even more amazing at night when the street lights turn the walls of the buildings into a beautiful orange hue. With each step you take on the first paved street in the New World, you travel deeper in time until you feel like you are in the 1500s walking alongside Christopher Columbus himself.

Hotels

There are many hotels to choose from and they offer a wide range of prices, from budget to elegant. The good thing about budget hotels in this area is that they are clean and have friendly people, many of whom speak English. Please note that these are old buildings and although they are clean, most of the rooms are small and have ‘old building’ issues. Still, for the price, I think they offer a great experience in a great area. There are many of these hotels and many offer different special offers at different times, so it is difficult to recommend a specific hotel. The reason I like hotels in this area is that when you walk out the door of your hotel, you don’t need to pay for a taxi to take you somewhere to enjoy yourself. You are already at the # 1 destination in Santo Domingo.

At the higher end, there are several hotels to enjoy, but I’ll talk about Hodelpa Nicolas De Ovando. This hotel has spacious rooms, a nice patio in the back to enjoy the evenings, a small bar, good food for the buffet breakfast and for dinner they have a wonderful menu, but the two best aspects of this hotel are its history. and its architecture. Nicolás de Ovando, Christopher Columbus’ traveling companion, was the third governor of the Indies and this hotel was his home and dates back to 1502. This hotel is located on Calle Las Damas (the first paved street) in one of the First houses, so for me, there is no better place to stay to be able to immerse yourself in the culture of the oldest city in the New World. But don’t worry if the hotel is out of your budget, you can visit it and enjoy a cocktail at the bar or on the patio.

Things to do and see

Walking tour

I strongly suggest that you take the Calle Las Damas walking tour and be the first thing you do when you arrive in the Colonial Zone. Once you understand the buildings and their history, you can enjoy them more. For example, if you are sitting in the Plaza de España enjoying a nice dinner, while you look across the square and see the stone building, it will no longer be just a stone building because, after doing the walking tour, You will understand that this is the home of Christopher Columbus’s son, Diego Colon.

As you walk down Calle Las Damas, the tour guides will approach you and offer you the walking tour. So far, all the tours I have taken have been with guides who speak excellent English. The walking tour usually lasts two hours. I usually talk to the tour guide before and ask him to do the highlights and try to do the tour in 1 to 1 1/2 hours. The cost of the tour is usually around $ 1,000 Dominican pesos ($ 20 USD), but you can try to negotiate a lower price. The tour guides do a great job and are loving, so I think they earn the $ 1,000 pesos.

The next section will talk about some of the buildings that are worth seeing and many of them will be included in the tour.

Historic buildings, museums and attractions

Cathedral of Santa María / The Cathedral of Santa María– built in 1514, it is the first cathedral in the Americas. This cathedral is an active cathedral and performs services and has 7 beautiful chapels.

Alcazar de Colon It is the home of Christopher Columbus’s son (Diego Colon). This house has been converted into a beautiful museum with some original furniture and some reproductions of the original furniture. Walking through this museum will give you an idea of ​​how Columbus lived in the 16th century.

Spain Square It is a large and open meeting area that on one side has 8 restaurants overlooking the plaza and on the other has the Alcázar de Colón (the home of Diego Colón, son of Cristóbal Colón). The square is at the end of Calle Las Damas.

Las Damas Street it is probably the most historically important street in the city. It was the first paved street in the Americas and it was also the street that women of high society walked after church to attend lunch. The street is lined with buildings from the 1500s that have now been converted into museums, hotels, restaurants, etc. Draw the story as you walk down this street.

Conde Street it is probably the second most important street in the city. This street is closed to traffic and is full of shops, cafes, restaurants, hotels, and it has a small park (Parque Colón) in the middle and, on the other side of this street, you have Parque Independencia (Parque de la Independencia).

Ozama fortress It is a 16th century castle built overlooking the Ozama River in the Colonial Zone. This is the oldest European-designed fortress in America.

Ruins of San Francisco They are the remains of a monastery built in preparation for the Franciscan Fathers in 1508. It is considered an important ruin and was the work of Governor Nicolás de Ovando.

Panteon of the homeland Originally a Jesuit church, it later became a mausoleum to house the remains of some of the Dominican Republic’s most notable national, civil and military heroes.

The Colón Park (Parque Colón) It was the main gathering place for festivities in colonial times and still is today. Located on Calle Conde in front of the Hotel Conde and bordering the Cathedral of Santa María, it is a great place to sit on a park bench under a tree and take a break from visiting the museums and ruins to immerse yourself in the beauty and the culture.

Restaurants, bars, cafes and nightclubs

There are many restaurants, bars, cafes and nightclubs in the Colonial Zone. I will focus on the ones that are historically significant, those that I have enjoyed, and some that our past clients have enjoyed.

Overlooking Plaza España and the Alcázar de Colón (Deigo Colón’s home) there are 8 restaurants located in a row. Each of them has a menu located in front of the restaurant in Spanish and English. The 8 restaurants are elegant and the oldest restaurant in the New World is one of these 8. Pate Palo (the wooden leg) once owned by a one-legged pirate is a 500-year-old restaurant in which Sir Francis Drake ate once. Whether you eat at Pate Palo or one of the other 8, you can’t go wrong choosing one of these.

On Calle Conde there are several restaurants to choose from. They are casual wear for lunch and casual or luxury casual at night. Segrefrados, an Italian restaurant, is an excellent place not only for eating, but also for people watching. They have great coffee in the morning to start the day, and their pizzas are excellent too. For a more traditional Dominican cuisine, you can visit the first floor of the Conde hotel. This restaurant has a patio with views of both Calón Park and Santa María Cathedral.

At the end of Calle Conde there is a very famous cafe / restaurant called Grands, formerly Pacos. This restaurant is open 24 hours a day and is a great place for coffee and breakfast to start your day. This is not a fancy place, but a regular cafe that on any day of the week, you will see people gathering here for a good conversation over their Dominican style coffee and food, no matter the time.

LuLus Tasting Bar is a great place to enjoy a cocktail and dinner. It is a very trendy place that is casual luxury.

Onnos is a nightclub located in the heart of the Colonial Zone where you can listen to the country’s favorite music (Bachata, Merengue and Salsa).

As I mentioned before, there are many more restaurants, cafes, bars, and nightclubs to choose from, but I wanted to give you a list of what we consider to be popular options. As you walk you will see many others, if you see one that you like, just come in and enjoy.

In conclusion

Between the history, museums, great restaurants, cafes, and nightlife, the Colonial Zone should be a must-see for anyone visiting the Dominican Republic. This is a friendly English speaking area that is very safe to walk as a tourist.

In ancient times, in addition to the use of animals such as donkeys, camels, and horses for transportation and / or carriage facilitators, some wealthy individuals used Bicycles to move from one point to another. There may be one or two people who have the resources to buy bicycles at that time in a village.

However, when civilization came, the use of the bicycle as a pleasure ride was jettisoned due to the fact that it was not as fast as the new invention – the automobile. The facilities that are enjoyed in a car are not available in any bicycle as the size that allows more than 1 or 2 people on board. It has a roof that provides shelter from both the sun and the rain in its seasons. Your exposure to risks like accidents is also minimal compared to the bicycle which is exposed to many dangers.

Traffic congestion on our roads where Lagos residents are subject to traffic jams for a minimum of 2 hours, both in the mornings on their way to offices / markets / shops and when they return at night, leaves much to be desired. In an attempt to stop the unpleasant situation, the state government decided to create exclusive lanes on the main highways of the state, acquired new state-of-the-art luxury buses that take passengers from one place to another with duly regulated travel. resulting in a trip from Ketu to the CMS terminals, for example, taking no more than 30 minutes on average. So far, the government has recorded some successes with this innovation, but there is still a lot to do because we still experience heavy traffic in the non-exclusive lanes and this requires some serious exit thinking. All hands must be on deck.

The next area that I would like the government to examine is the possibility of encouraging the inhabitants of Lagos to start using the bicycle as a means of transportation in the state, with consequent benefits for the physical and economic aspects of our being.

However, as can be obtained with each undertaking / process / endeavor in life with advantages that must have disadvantages, the bicycle as a means of transport in our urban cities despite its exposure to accidental risks on the roads and / or intraways has many advantages that far from the disadvantages. They can be classified into physical / health, economic and environmental benefits.

Physical / health benefit

The physical benefits of cycling as a means of transportation in our urban cities could be in the form of physical fitness. The fact that most of the bicycles used in this part of the world are manually operated serves as a form of exercise for the rider in which unnecessary fats are burned from the body, thus ensuring that they are in good physical shape. This further extends to stability of mind and soul. A healthy mind will always be ready to fulfill any assigned duty effectively and efficiently due to its physical and mental fitness.

Economic benefit

1. The economy of any state is guaranteed by the effectiveness and efficiency of the provision of services within the various organs of its system. Wherever time is wasted, that economy loses a lot of money. The bicycle as a means of transport will ensure that there is little or no traffic jam on our roads; people will be able to execute their business plans without stress on the roads, as has been experienced for many decades with thousands of motor vehicles heading to the same location at the same time.

2. The cost of purchasing a bicycle is much cheaper and more affordable than the cost of owning a car. It is equally cheaper to maintain a bicycle than a car. In the same way, there is an opportunity for lower class people to own a motor / mobility machine such as a bicycle more easily than a car that facilitates their movement in and around the city.

3. Bicycle owners no longer have to worry about fuel, especially when there is a fuel shortage.

4. Bicycles require little or no serious maintenance compared to cars that need regular engine maintenance and tune-up at least two to three times a year.

5. The spaces occupied by bicycles are so minimal that 8 to 10 bicycles can be parked in a space for one car (ie a space of approximately 7.2 m2). This means that more people conduct business in the city of Lagos without being anxious about how to get transportation back to their destinations at the end of the day.

6. Children are not left out of this endless list of benefits in the sense that parents can afford to buy them bikes without much effort in their wallets. They are allowed access to the roads even before their 18th birthday (allowed by law to drive a car) under the close supervision of parents.

Environmental benefit

Riding a bicycle on our roads will prevent the uncontrollable emission of carbon monoxide, CO from thousands of vehicles that circulate on our roads every day. This poisonous gas is dangerous to the health of our people and has always contributed to the high death rate in society. The same is true of the effect of CO on the ozone layer in the sky.

TO DO LIST

To be successful in the proposed system, the Lagos State government must implement some measures that address the dangers inherent in cycling on our roads. The benefits, while numerous and plausible, will become nil if the Government refuses to guarantee the following:

1. As achievable with the BRT lanes that are dedicated to government buses on most of our major highways, the government must create dedicated bike lanes to avoid collisions with motorized vehicles.

2. The government should enact laws that require cyclists to wear protective helmets before undertaking any trip with their bicycles.

3. Execution of the “right of way” section of the traffic code to ensure that other road users obey the code at our “roundabouts” and “junctions” at all times.

Given the above, the roads in Lagos will be very safe and we will all be proud to be part of the Lagos flat. Then, Lagos will be a state of LONGEVITY AND GOOD HEALTH.

Eko o ni go down oooooooooooooo!

Cargo trailers are must-have purchases for many people. Buying a trailer can make it easier for you to transport cargo safely. Enclosed trailers are what most people choose for a variety of reasons.

There are many options available to you when you want to buy a cargo trailer. It can be very confusing to make a decision! One of the first options you have is whether to buy open or closed trailers. If you value your cargo and your investment, you should choose enclosed trailers for a variety of reasons.

Enclosed trailers offer many features over open trailers. One feature they offer is protection against bad weather. Imagine carrying precious cargo only to have it ruined in a storm! Enclosed trailers can completely eliminate this problem, as your cargo won’t be exposed to the elements.

Enclosed trailers have double or single doors that open and close. These allow you easy access to your cargo inside while protecting your investment. Some enclosed trailers even have a ramp. This makes it possible to put things like large vehicles inside closed trailers. Once the vehicle goes up the ramp, they fold up and the doors close.

Another reason to choose enclosed trailers is because they can be locked. If you are spending the night somewhere or will be away for an extended period of time, it is essential that you lock the load. There is nothing worse than going back to your truck and finding out that your things have been stolen! An enclosed trailer can do a lot to prevent theft.

Despite all these wonderful things, some people prefer open trailers to closed ones. One of the reasons they give for this is that they consider closed trailers to be too heavy. This can be true if you only have a light load on your open trailer. However, an open trailer simply doesn’t have the structure that closed trailers have.

However, it can be noted that the extra weight adds durability to enclosed trailers. You can be sure that your cargo is safe in enclosed trailers. There is little risk that your items will be too heavy for enclosed trailers, and you don’t need to worry about them falling over.

Other people are put off by the higher cost of enclosed trailers. They are drawn to open trailers because they believe they will save money. However, many people end up buying closed trailers later on anyway because they have found that open trailers just don’t meet their needs.

You may end up spending a lot more than if you just bought enclosed trailers to begin with! It would be a real shame to make the wrong decision when buying cargo trailers because they are a great investment.

If the cargo you’re hauling is important to you, you’ll want to buy enclosed trailers. Enclosed trailers offer the durability and protection you need. Even though they are more expensive enclosed trailers, they are still an inexpensive option due to the quality they will provide.

Your wedding day, one of the most memorable days of your life. Getting to this day takes hours and hours of organization and research. One aspect of that organization that is often overlooked or left to the last minute is wedding cars. This is traditionally the responsibility of the groom, but as is the case these days, the bride is often the one who arranges everything, usually with the help of her mother, sister, or friends. This is fine as most grooms do not have the knowledge or understanding of how important wedding cars are to the bride.

So how do you know exactly what you will need in regards to wedding vehicle rental and transportation?

First of all, how many cars, or even more means of transportation, will you need? Think about the trip and who will need to travel in the cars. The maid of honor, the flower girl, the pages, in addition to considering the fathers and mothers of the bride and groom. Oh, and don’t forget about the groom in person with the best man. This will help decide the number and type of cars needed.

It is traditional for the bride and her father to ride in the main wedding car, but due to budget constraints, many brides are choosing to rent a larger style car, such as a limousine that can transport the bride, her father, and the girls. bridesmaids with flowers for the same price as a smaller, more traditional car like a Rolls Royce or Beauford. Very often, the cost of renting a limousine is excellent value for money.

The size of the car should also be taken into account when thinking about the wedding dress, as you need to make sure that you and your dress fit comfortably in the car, especially if there is a long train in the dress as well. If you have luggage or large bags, consider asking a family member to take them or ask the venue if you can drop them off by taxi the day before, making sure the venue has a safe and secure storage location.

Remember to ask the wedding car company if they have the correct insurance, not just normal car insurance, but also liability insurance to cover an accident involving your dress, etc. Also ask if they have an exclusive rental of the cars, as you could be late at the church or registry office and you need to make sure that the wedding car rental company is not in a rush to attend another wedding after yours. Call the wedding car rental company 2 weeks in advance to make sure everything is on track.

You may need to consider hiring a coach as well if your venue is far from the ceremony location or if it is difficult for your guest to get to.

Your wedding cars are not only for transporting the bride and groom, etc., they are a vital element of your day and will also be included in your photograph, so it is important to appreciate that this transport is as important as the dress.

So remember, book cars well in advance as they are often booked very quickly. Use a reputable company, join a wedding forum in your local area and ask others for recommendations, but most of all do everything ahead of time and then sit back and enjoy the ride.

It is important to hire taxi services when returning home from a long international plane trip.

There are several articles titled “7 Ways to Save on Car Insurance” or “5 Tips to Lower Your Car Insurance Costs” etc, but wouldn’t it be great to have all those savings and discount tricks in one place? ? Below you will find such a list for auto insurance. This list is a complete overview of all the opportunities to save on car insurance in Canada, and was compiled based on the results of numerous discussions with insurance brokers and through analysis of different insurance offers.

1. Compare prices: Find, compare and change insurance companies. There are many insurance providers and their price offerings for the same policies can be very different, so use various online tools and talk to multiple brokers, as each will cover a limited number of insurance companies.

two. Bunch: Do you need home and auto insurance? Most companies will offer you a discount if you bundle them together.

3. Professional membership: Are you a member of a professional organization (for example, Certified Management Accountants of Canada or the Air Canada Pilots Association)? So some insurance companies offer you a discount.

4. Students: Being a student can only result in a student discount.

5. Former students: Graduates of certain Canadian universities (eg University of Toronto, McGill University) may be eligible for a discount at certain insurance providers.

6. Employees / union members: Some companies offer discounts to union members.

7. Older people: Many companies offer special prices for seniors.

8. Direct insurers: Have you always dealt with insurance brokers / agents? Obtaining a policy from a direct insurer (i.e. insurers that work through a call center or online) can often be cheaper (but not always) as they don’t pay an agent / broker commission for each policy sold .

9. Annual vs. monthly payments: Compared to monthly payments, annual payments save insurers administrative costs (for example, sending bills) and therefore reward you with lower premiums.

10. Loyalty: Staying with an insurer longer can sometimes result in a long-term discount for the policyholder.

11. Annual exam: Review your policies and coverage every year, as new discounts may apply to your new life situation if it has changed.

12. Welcome discount: Some insurers offer a so-called welcome discount.

13. Compare your costs: Knowing how much other consumers like you pay for their insurance can help you identify the cheapest insurance providers.

14. Deductibles for auto insurance: Increase your auto insurance deductibles if you think you may incur higher damage payments in the event of an accident. This is especially suitable for more experienced car drivers.

15. Be a second driver: Do you drive a car only occasionally? Become a second album instead of being a main conductor

16. Minimum coverage: Are you driving an old car without great value? Get minimum coverage required by law (primarily liability) with no collision damage (you’re still protected if you damage someone’s car, but damage to your car won’t be covered)

17. Minimum coverage: Driving an inexpensive old car? Then get just a minimum coverage plan required by law (mainly liability) with no collision damage coverage (it doesn’t cover your vehicle damage costs)

18. Take advantage of your credit card: Check if your credit card insurance includes rental car protection. Paying with a card that has rental car protection insurance can save you about $ 20 a day in collision damage waiver fees.

19. Take advantage of rental car coverage: If you frequently rent cars and have a car insurance policy, you should check to see if your own car insurance policy actually covers the rental car. If so, you can save on all Collision Damage Waiver costs for rental vehicles.

20. Rental car driver: If your existing auto insurance policy doesn’t cover your rental car, you can often add it as a rider (policy extension) for $ 20-30 a year. Compared to the $ 20 per day you would pay to rent a car, it’s not a bad deal!

21. Rent, rent, rent: Auto insurance costs are different from province to province (for example, moving from Ontario to Quebec will surely cut your insurance costs in half). If you are moving within a province, you should check for changes in car insurance costs, and ideally you should move to a place where the costs are lower (for example, Burlington, Ontario has one of the lowest car insurance rates tallest in Ontario)

22. CAA Member: CAA Members: Are you a CAA member? Some insurance providers will reward you with lower insurance premiums, including, of course, the CAA.

23. Dash camera: Get a dash cam for your vehicle. Even though installing a dash cam does not result in direct savings (insurance companies do not offer any discounts on dash cam related insurance), it can prove you are not at fault when it is the case of a accident. This allows you to avoid unfair premium increases.

24. Driving course: Sometimes some insurance providers recognize that successfully completing a driving course can help lower your premiums.

25. Improving your driving record: Have a bad driving record? Every three years, previously incurred tickets are removed from your insurance history and your insurance premiums may decrease.

26. Accidents due to fault: Have you had a couple of accidents in the past where you were at fault? With a little patience (six years without accidents), your risk profile will improve, allowing you to once again enjoy reasonable rates on insurance premiums.

27. Age: Older drivers enjoy lower auto insurance premiums. Therefore, in several years your premiums may go down.

28. Make and model of car: Choose your car wisely, as some car models are more susceptible to theft or even have a history of riskier drivers (for example, Toyota Camry, Acura MDX, Toyota RAV4 and Honda Civic are usually quite expensive to insure)

29. Good student: Yes, having good grades can have a lot of positive impacts, and even your car insurance rates! For example, an insurance company rewards students under the age of 25 and with good grades (grade point average of B or higher) with a discount of up to 25%.

30. Multi-car-pack: Bundle multiple cars into one policy and your rate may go down

31. Anti-theft system: Installing a certified anti-theft system in your car reduces the risk of theft and can therefore lead to discounts on insurance.

As we know, a motorcycle can be two-wheeled or three-wheeled. The idea came to mind for Edward Butler from England while experimenting with his son’s cycle. His son’s cycle was a tricycle; He added a motor to that tricycle and did the experiment. The experiment paid off and was a success.

Everyone appreciated it and the news spread like wildfire everywhere. After reading the news, a German named Gottlieb Daimler reflected on it and created his own motor that he had connected to the bike. He completed his experiment in 1886 and built his own motorcycle. In 1901, Michael and Eugene Werner built the first motorcycle. Until the 20th century, no one used the word “motorcycle”. Later, a number of motorcycles were made which were two-wheelers, three-wheelers, sports bikes, mopeds, scooters, etc.

Many governments of countries and cities established a rule according to which it is mandatory to wear a helmet while driving a two-wheeler for both people sitting on the motorcycle. It is good to introduce this law because, as we know, life is above everything.

If something bad happens to someone, it affects the whole family and even society. It would be beneficial if the government launches camps to make people aware of the safety issue regarding vehicles and their driving.

From an economic point of view, motorcycles are beneficial as they consume less fuel compared to other four-wheelers. Help save money and fuel for the next generation. As the population increases, so does fuel consumption, so if we want to save fuel for our next generation, we must opt ​​for motorcycles and not fuel-consuming vehicles.
