Experience Dominica – The Nature Island: Dominica Vacations | Exotic Vacations | Honeymoon Destination

Dominica weekly is a personal weblog about the nature island of Dominica.


Regardless how difficult people’s individual situation might be there are just some things people are willing to continue to spend money on.

Makes you wonder just how much extra effort individuals are making in order to preserve the scarce financial resources in Dominica.

At every turn there are complaints in relation to how bad the economy is, but people are still willing to spend money into things that would offer them even a temporary getaway from the troubles they face.

This is why various shows and other programmes that provide entertainment are still desirable to Dominicans, even though some might be suffering silently.

This leads us to the point I think it very necessary to make when it comes to the stock of local entertainment.

Do these promoters not have auditions to see who fits nicely into the programme and who can bring something positive to the stage? Do they listen to some of the lyrics some of the entertainers, local and international, bring to share with their valued audience? The answer most of the sometimes is a very painful “no“.

Better needs to be done as it’s hard to spend money on a local entertainment which doesn’t justify the investment.

Of course there are some great exceptions at times but quite consistently these local performers are terribly lower the standard of the overall effort. And sooner or later these loyal paying patrons will realize that these types of entertainment don’t measure up to their hard-earned dollars. But then again Dominicans are a special case.

Owen, I guess the old saying is true – “One man rubbish is another man treasure.”

Chris – Do you have an example for us? What is good value entertainment and what is bad value entertainment?
