Week in Review: July 20 – July 26

In Life by Continental StaffLeave a Comment

This week at the Current we relaxed on the beaches of the Dominican, made the most of the Pan American Games, and more! As always, catch up on what you missed with our Week in Review.

Dominican Republic


The Dominican Republic was our Country of the Week. We explored the sometimes troubling (but altogether fascinating) history, unique culture, and surprisingly diverse geography (it’s not just beaches)! Get more HERE.

In our Travel Guide we did our best to narrow down the wealth of tropical options you have when visiting the country. There’s great beaches, vibrant cities, mountains, and so much more that it was tough to keep up! Get our guide HERE.

Our Currency Spotlight focused on the Dominican peso. Be sure to give it a look before you next decide to set off down south to the Caribbean’s most popular destination! Learn more HERE.

Toronto during the Pan American Games


We love the Pan American Games over here at the Current, but we wanted to make sure everyone was making the most of their time in Toronto – no matter where they’re from! We took a look at some of the city’s best sights as well as some can’t miss excursions slightly outside of the city (think waterfalls). See where to you should be spending your time HERE.


Every week we round up the biggest business stories from around the world in Headlines. This week taxis hit back at Uber, Amazon surpasses Walmart’s market value, oil production is up, and much more HERE.

Looking Ahead

Next week we’re back to Europe to visit a sometimes criminally overlooked, multilingual country. Beyond that, look for more of the great stories you’ve come to expect!
