It was a while ago… on the Day of Sevens – 7/7/2007.
The number seven is considered lucky by many cultures. So many people went to Vegas on the Day of Sevens (777). I decided to move in the opposite direction and live out a few days on the beach of Caribbean Sea in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Not many pictures had been taken there, I had other goals while lying on the beach watching seabirds fly by [smile] However, I have recently found a photo of “a local guy with two parrots” taken in Dominican Republic and decided to publish a few memories from that trip.
The Dominican Republic (República Dominicana) is a nation on the island of La Hispaniola, part of the Greater Antilles archipelago in the Caribbean region. The western third of the island is occupied by the nation of Haiti, making Hispaniola one of two Caribbean islands that are shared by two countries. Both by area and population, the Dominican Republic is the second largest Caribbean nation (after Cuba), with 48,442 square kilometres (18,704 sq mi) and an estimated 10 million people. [Wikipedia]
It looks like you had fun! Did you make it into Santo Domingo? We just spent a month in the Dominican Republic. Great place!!
Sharon recently posted..What inspires you to travel?
I define two vacation categories: Active (hiking, exploring, etc) and Relaxing (beach, cruise, etc). So this was a very relaxing vacation, Sharon.
I arrived to Santo Domingo airport, but took a bus towards La Romana (east of the airport). The city of Santo Domingo is located west of the airport.
Thanks for stopping by!
