Day Trip to Santo Domingo

Punta Cana 88a

    The whole time I was at Punta Cana I was conscious – or felt – that I was in an artificial world – a ‘make believe’ place. I was enjoying myself yes … it was a dream. But it was hard for me to shake that feeling. That it was not real. And maybe I didn’t really deserve to be here.

    I recognized that I am privileged. The average person in the Dominican Republic (or the world) will never have access to anything like this. The 3rd World was just outside our gilded gates … and they will never get in.

    So I wanted to see some of that Real World … if I could.

Curiously …

Our guide told us that before the government took over the caves,
several people had died here – mainly from falling or drowning.
Later Rose and I noticed several orbs in our shots.

Punta Cana 102

This is the only orb shot I’ve included here. Hard to miss though.

    We went to a cave like that in Mexico. It must be a big thing in a lot of places.

      I thought we were just going into Santo Domingo. An interesting diversion. Yes there does seem to be a lot o these subterranean caverns in Mexican and the peninsula. Who knows what the Ancients used them for?

      Thanks Marilyn,
      But I confess – nobody has to show me how to have some fun.
