Santo Domingo

On Monday, Candace and I made a trip to Santo Domingo! My mom's friend Ron, from high school, was here visiting for a few days while doing some training with the Coast Guard. We got on the bus in Puerto Plata for what we were told was a 2.5 hour trip. 4 hours later we stepped off the bus in Santo Domingo and were greeting by what seemed like North America. There were skyscrapers and lots of people and shopping malls...and the best part of all-Taco Bell! Nacho cheese Chalupas made the 4 hour journey worth it alone! So we walked through the city down to the boardwalk for about 2 hours and met up with Ron. It was great to see him again and to feel so welcomed, like we were high school friends!! We're definitely looking forward to our next trip to Santo Domingo when we can spend more time and see more of the city...and Taco Bell again!
