Greetings friends! We spent some of these holiday weekends in Sosúa, celebrating Christmas and Jakob‘s 21st birthday.
In the Dominican Republic, winter is almost like summer. There is just a slightly colder wind blowing, but we definitely enjoy hot chocolate just as if it were snowing (what do I know, I’ve never seen snow). Either way… GOOD!
Playa Santa was created a few years ago after an earthquake in Sosúa. I love coming here. There’s always a peaceful crowd, and it’s a good place to hang with friends.
Feel the sand between your toes! (I can see us holding hands, walking in the beach our toes in the sand… –this is me loving Justin Timberlake)
Happy birthday! You are globally legal.
Honestly, if you can’t see her huge bruise, I’ve got news for you: YOU ARE BLIND!
This is el Parque Mirador Sosúa, built two years ago as a memoir for the jewish settlers of the town. I like it, the only problem comes at noon, when the sun is so bright that the floor barely lets you see (maybe that’s why I went blind). But the park is perfect for watching the sunset. If you ever come here, I recommend it!
This is just an example of how it looks.
Let me tell you, these dramatic colors are also complemented with a lighter landscape of silver-ish colors (I think that’s why it’s called Puerto Plata -Silver Port/Pier-, because Colombus said the water reflected colors in a very peculiar way. This next picture was taken the same day, just a few degrees (and minutes) around the same spot I was standing when I took the previous picture.
Sometimes you have to find the beauty in ugliness. This tree looks so fine with that green stuff growing on it.
I’m sorry, I just can’t get over this sunset.
This huge lollypop caught my attention right when I saw it. I knew I had to get it! Found it at Ágora Mall (Santo Domingo).
I’m almost sure he was modeling for me!
I hope to take more and more pictures each time I travel. Recently I’ve seen some pretty amazing blogs, and I have to say… I’m inspired!
