1/21/2014: We thought that it might be worthwhile to drive around the Lago Enriquillo, and we set off to the west. It quickly became obvious that the level of the lake had risen, and Lake Azuei was threatened with being engulfed.

We looked around a bit for coots near the border before continuing our journey around the lake. However, we were not able to go much further as the road was now under the lake.
