From the beginning, this blog was meant to tell about my life as an emigrant to an island in the Caribbean After spending a test period there in 4 months, I could say that everything has become so much more expensive in the Dominican Republic than it was the first time I lived there for 3 years. My pension was simply not enough. So until now I live in Sweden again.
So now there are no more direct reports from me as an emigrant, at least not in the foreseeable future. Perhaps there will be an occasional story about my life in the Caribbean when I stayed there in 1991-1994, which is still not written down.
