All you have in the Colonial Zone now are two police on every corner. Thousand's of pigens and an empty choo choo. All banks will be leaving ! Three already. Why have banks with no clients. Maribel's secret plan is working !

the police are only there at daytime , we are left to our own devices at night. We had the large wedding, daughter of Danilo two weeks ago and there was nowhere to park for anyone wanting to eat in ZC . It is so easy to make ZC very beautiful, but the officials just make it worse.

Officials like the iron posts. I estimate Maribel makes 20 dollars for each post she buys then she gets installation kick back. So when she finishes withe the IDB money she will have installed over 100 thousand posts and probably knocked down a dozen buildings. Plus her other kick backs from the Haitians ! Nice job !
