The Black Expat: Finding Peace of Mind in the Dominican Republic (Interview with Kayla Rodriguez)
In this episode we continue the Black Expat series with an interview with Kayla Rodriguez, a member of Spanish Con Salsa who started learning with us and has recently moved to the Dominican Republic.
In this interview, Kayla talks all about why she decided to move to the DR. She tells us a bit about the expat community there and how they adjust to the Dominican lifestyle and culture. Kayla also shares the true cost of living on the island from clothes to technology, and why a ‘colmado‘ is a lifesaver.
She also talks about how safe it is to live there–despite what people from the outside may think–and how she's been using her Dominican Spanish 101 Book to communicate better with the locals.
