Do any of y'all happen to know anything about the Peace Corps? I thought there might well be a real diversity of opinion in this forum.
One of my exgf's college roommates was a PCV. She got sent to the Dominican Republic. Friends went to visit her thinking they'd be hanging out in a cool tropical place, maybe with a beach, but found out she lived in a 1-room ****hole invested with tropical bugs and rodents. And there was a community shower you had to draw your own water for. So it wasn't a vacation spot.
She ended up marrying a local guy and bringing him home. He speaks no English and had never seen an oven before when he got here, so there was a bit of a learning curve. Another friend went to Honduras and married a local guy. So it appears to be an excellent way to bang and marry locals while working off some first world guilt.
