I am Janette Keys. I moved to Dominican Republic from Mars, Pennsylvania November 2001.
I have a son who died when he was 23 years old. He was my baby boy and I will miss him forever.
I brought my dog Sniffy with me to start a new adventure. She died after 3 years here an old happy girl.
It for sure has been an adventure. Ups and downs, good and bad. All in all, I am happy I made the move. I love my new country.
Recently I moved into a new small apartment and got a new dog, Inteliperra. Teli for short.
I run my web site about Colonial Zone and Dominican Republic. I have a news blog, Colonial Zone News. I recently added the newest addition to my blog family, The Dominican Dog Blog, The Life and Times of Teli, The Dominican Dog.
The name Dominican Gringa came from my neighbors. They gave me this name and I like it.
My blog is to let people know of what life, at least my life, is like in this island in the Caribbean. Good and bad, I try to share it all.
Hope you enjoy my stories.
