sound....don't know about DR, but in the Middle East and Med, my experience is that the sound has a definite sexual connotation; not a call for service at the bar. I had to intervene countless times in a Cairo Suq in July when a traveling companion was on the receiving end of countless "psstttts". Fact is, it was always from the lowest class of people....probably the equivalent to the sankies I read about in many posts.

Funny thing -- Arabs don't do that to their own women and there would probably be blood shed if a brother overheard it happen to his mother or sister.

Go figure.....but Chiri's right......and DR is not all that different than a lot of other places.

Best, P
