The challenges and rewards are greatest where two systems meet.

Beautiful People of the Dominican Republic

We have returned from a "muy spectacularoso" trip to the Dominican Republic. This will be the first of a few posts on this most wonderful adventure. Our stay could not have happened without our buenos amigos whom we met through the Plymouth Writing Project. 
Santo Domingo is a vibrant non stop city.
We had muchos guias but our superior controladora was Clara with her esposo Woscar.
Two other famous guides and writers were
Nelsy and Maximo. Gretchen and I visited classes when we met up with our friends Jen and Karen from Sant Bani School in Sanbornton, NH.

 It was a wonderful trip because of all the families we met through our "new family" connections. Here Hector introduces us to his niece and nephew. What Fun.
My Exhibition at U.A.S.D.(largest public university in Santo Domingo) also connected us with more wonderful people like Dean Maria Pilar and Profesor Agustin Cortes.

Our friend Albania and her two daughters gave us the Colonial City tour.

This is just the introduction. Please check back for the continuing D.R. adventures, including our wonderful tour with Dede at the Hermanas Mirabal, visits to the family farms in the mountains, beautiful faces of the city, and our trip to Samana.  Next installment in two days .
