I am sure the Beatles must have come to the Dominican Republic when they wrote that song.
There are a whole range of other greetings. I could say "buen dia" which means good day, or, more likely, shorten it to "buenos". I could say "entonces" which means "so", but you don't wait for the answer. Another option would be "Que dice ese hombre?" which means "what does this man say?" I have heard men use that more than women so I haven't tried that one yet.
Often people will say,"Como va todo?" which is "How is everything?"
Anyone know the answer?
