I’m Back From the Dominican—Day 4, Final

Photo Blog

It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted as I’ve been busy with other things. I’ve been meaning to finish up the Dominican pictures, so today I’ll throw out the rest. There’s a pile of them, so I hope they don’t take too long to load. About half of these were shot with a crappy point-and-shoot, so you’ll have to look past their shabby quality. We went on a dune buggy excursion that took us up into the mountains through some jungle-like terrain, so there was no way I was taking the big hoss camera out there. The point-and-shoot worked perfectly to capture some of the moments though. I think everyone had a blast in those things! Now that I’ve got these taken care of, it’s time to concentrate on getting that website taken care of. Once again, enjoy.

This was our stupid drive back to Santo Domingo. At every stoplight people would come trying to sell us crap and clean our windshield for money. That's why our windshield wipers were on.
