• Travel to Dominican Republic
The first stop - La Romana, a pretty town in the south.
awfully nice people live in the Dominican Republic. All are welcome, like to be photographed, help advice, not intrusive. I do not remember the country, where it was so comfortable to travel. Even in tourist areas no stick, no begging for money, and is not trying to cheat.
In La Romana has the same name river, whose shores are lined with colorful houses of fishermen
Yet there are cats
On the horizon is seen a cruise ship, there is a terminal where bring PUPS.
All drains from the houses is poured directly into the river
Interior local home
The streets of La Romana
Watermelon unusual shape, I never have not seen
Next stop San Pedro de Macoris. Almost all cities have the same layout. In the center of the square with benches and gazebos, sculptures necessarily something. Around colonial rectangular construction, preferential one-storey. Nothing interesting.
In La Romana Coca-Cola sponsored the installation of traffic signs, signs are now at each of their logo. I'm at the beginning of Shuga, from a distance looks like a "brick", and then used.
Behind the wheel sat a big black man near the woman of Slavic appearance. It is a pity, photo does not transmit the music that could be heard from this Hammer.
All play baseball
Going further north, in the direction of Hato Mayor. Here they grow sugar cane.
I thought in Dominikate terrible, and here are all very well, all work, all ladybugs are grazing, fields, gardens, no one sits idle.
The village, where workers live cane plantations
In the evening, with people brings plantation tractor
Returning home from work
A typical rural life
The town of El Seibo
In every village there are home-made Christmas tree. Firs then decided to do from beer bottles. Under the tree necessarily any Christmas and New Year syuzhetik the Magi, reindeer and Santa.

All frightened Dominican roads, but in reality it was not so scary. Most importantly - the road is very good. Across the country is an excellent highway is paid, where you can safely keep an average speed of 150 kilometers per hour. The rest of the road is also good. The only problem - all night drive with high beam. Especially buses and trucks much blind. Well, the kids love the night to catch on the rollers and roller coaster ride. All the time afraid to knock down another minor moron.
Trees in the Dominican Republic to decorate in the Moscow - only the trunk and large branches.
