Cholera Outbreak... Am I overreacting?!?!

Recommended Posts

I did some investigating on this matter and we can all breath a sigh of relief!!!!!!   i just read the wedding was in la romano not punta cana, at a resort called casa de campo.  the resort food was not used, food was provided by an outside caterer (hired by the bride and groom) who did not use proper hygiene.  the caterer had nothing to do with the resort.  no guests dining on food from the resort were affected!   woot.gif

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! Whew, what a relief.  I was hoping that a five star resort wouldn't be responsible for something like this.  Nice work.
