    Dominicans like to have their house painted with nice colours. I heard it is done very regularly (yearly?) and amongst them it is a sign of wealth and that everything is ok for them.

    FRESH MEAT HANGING OUTSIDE FROM THE SHOPS : Dominicans love fresh meat. The fresh meat is only sold on the day it's done. After that it is salted. On the road you will see lots of shops selling meat.
