Next stop:

The Presidential Palace

We knew that a Day Trip wouldn’t allow us to see very much of Santo Domingo. But as we chugged along in the bus we tried to snap some pics … click, click, click … Whirlwind Tour style.

Lots of gates, walls, cannons, and soldiers. Santo Domingo was once a fortress city

We saw a lot of things where we would have liked to have stopped and taken pictures. Like this tremendous monument below:
