Trips

Dominican Republic

1/19/2014: After arriving at the hotel at 3:00 AM, we were thrilled to sleep to the relaxing sounds of a pounding disco party in the hotel. When the sun came out four hours later, I had barely been able to sleep, but I did manage to wake up for an hour or so to tour the hotel grounds.

The books all had promised "hundreds of Hispanolan Parakeets", but the reality was more like 20 parakeets which I hope woke all the party people early in the morning.
