So I am a stand up fan person. They have the advantage you can move them around, but for some reason they don't last very long. Of course, as always the Dominicans can fix them. This is the one in the bedroom, and as you can see it has a broom stick at the back to keep it together and wire wrapped around to keep the buttons held in. But it works brilliantly.
Of course, with true Dominican ingenuity if you really want you can combine the cool air of air conditioning with the efficiently and lower running cost of a fan.
Don't you just love this country, where when you go to bed at night you can't help but have a smile on your face just from looking at your bedroom fan!
