Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
GINNIE BEDGGOOD graduated in History from Queen Mary College, University of London, and post-graduated in Public and Social Administration from the LSE, Southampton University, and Brunel University. She worked as a probation officer in Soho, London, in the 1960s and spent seventeen years as a social work academic at Buckinghamshire Chilterns University College, before moving to the Dominican Republic. She has been living in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic since 1992. She is the author of Quisqueya: Mad Dogs and English Couple, a narrative that charts the early adjustment to her new surroundings.
ILANA BENADY was born in Gibraltar, and studied and lived in the UK for more than fifteen years, graduating in Politics and Social Anthropology from the University of Kent at Canterbury. Her work at the Oxfam headquarters in Oxford took her to the Dominican Republic in 1996. This set off a chain of events that culminated in her moving there in 1999 and marrying Dominican photographer Pedro Guzmán. After several years in the capital, Santo Domingo, they now live in Punta Cana on the east coast with their son Lucas. Ilana is the co-author of Aunt Clara's Dominican Cookbook and 100 Traditional Dominican Recipes.

More than just a ordinary travel guide,this book will give you the needed insights to feel at home in the culture because even if you do speak Spanish, the ways to the native folk can be hard to understand.
Written in very readable(if British, which may give US readers some pause but does not detract from the usefulness) prose, and accompanied by first hand experiences as illustrations, this is the ESSENTIAL guide for anyone coming here for more than a week at an all inclusive, or planning to move here.
(I have lived here for seven years and use this book as the text for my English class)
