More From the Dominican Republic
"Well, we took our bus from Bavarro to Boca Chica, Voodoo Juice and all.
We have a great hotel here. It is right on a white sand beach with aquamarine water. Its shallow and calm and we actually just hung out for one full day just enjoying our 2 balconies overlooking the beach scene.
Tuesday//well we just had to mix things up a bit. We aren,t far from Santo Domingo and in Santo Domingo is a Harley dealer that sells shirts/so we decided to get the shirt buying thing out of the way. Everyone laughed when we said we were going to take a bus into Santo Domingo and then clear across town to the shop. Well, we did make it to Santo Domingo but were totally defeated at getting across the city. Everyone on the street tried to help but no one had ever manmaged such a thing//now I know why. We were defeated and got a cab. Anyway there is a happy ending. We got a great shirt and spent the day with the most fearless taxi jockey ever. He backed up onramps and one way streets and several other things I closed my eyes for//All the time talking to us in the back seat. The streets here are full of people, cars, motorbikes, huge trucks, venders, fruit stands, and hanging dead chickens, not to mention people trying to sell you hog heads and, in fact, whole roasted hogs. Of course there is music and horns and people yelling just to make it all a bit more manic. It was heaven to get back to our little cozy beach.
Thank goodness the Voodoo juice is almost gone. We carted 2 gallons of the stuff on the bus here but it should be gone by our next connection to Santo Domingo. Plus Brad really stinks from it so bad I can,t sleep with him."
