Dominican Republic – Day 8

leave a comment »

We went to a neighbouring town of Sosua on day 8. This is the town where Rachel used to live when she worked in the DR. A city full of sex trade workers and sketchy street inhabitants scared some of the group.

I’ve seen it before, in Latvia, in Russia, in Toronto. Maybe not as much. It doesn’t frighten me – but it’s really sad. I’d love to have the power, or some money to change it all, but I don’t.

Nevertheless, we always have to do our best to change whatever is in our power – if everybody starts doing that we might achieve some great results.

We spent some time on Rachel’s favourite beach, a place with big rocks, abandoned hotels and some waves. Anyway, the rest of the group writes more and better than I do, so here is what I do best – pictures. Enjoy.

Dominican Republic – day 7

leave a comment »

Unfortunately I haven’t posted anything new here for quite a while. Nevertheless, I still have to finish my series of posts on our trip to the Dominican Republic, so here we are.

Day 7 was a free day for us. I spent a lot of time working on my pictures, then joined the others on the beach. We sat in a restaurant, swam in the ocean, bought souvenirs, and ended the day by going to night club on the beach.

I also tried to capture the amazing night sky with my camera, but it didn’t turn out the way I wanted it to.
