Firstly the country itself is beautiful. Look at this sunset, taken in Juan Dolio by my sister.
And the same Caribbean sea is just as fabulous in the day time.
In the south west the mountains tumble into the sea. The view is absolutely stunning.
Back to the people. The best way is to show you a video of photographs taken by Paul Gerace who has been taking photographs in the Dominican Republic for 21 years. His website is in the list of sites and blogs I follow on the right of this page. I hope you enjoy the video, and the music. It shows all different situations and people, and I think it really shows the spirit of the country and the people. Enjoy!
