Dominican Republic

Well, After driving from the east coast of the Dominican republic via the south shore, along some of the most beautiful waterfront property I have ever seen, I found my way inland with my Nissan Sentra and did some real exploring in the jungle. There are some beautiful villages with plenty of culture. As long as I am not stuck behind a herd of cattle in the middle of a dirt road, I am happy....The driving on the highways is nowhere near as crazy as in the city. Dodging all the dead dogs and cattle which line the road is a real task. Santo Domingo was unbelievable. Today, I am on the north Coast, just east of Puerto Plata in a small surfing village called Cabarete. my skin is rather pink so I will have to stay out of the sun for a little while. A steady diet of rice, beans, and chicken is completely fine with me. I think I am the only one of the guys I am traveling with that hasn't been visiting the bathroom more than 5 times before lunch....
