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.
In Santo Domingo you park wherever you can – even on the sidewalk
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:
Our picture from the bus …

To the Palace Alice!!!
We arrive at the Presidential Palace
Everybody jumps out
Time for a pic
Security is high
And can’t go in here either!
Wait ! They’re opening the gates !!
But it’s just some bigwig arriving …
Can’t see who it is … Sean Penn? Hillary Clinton ?… the plumber ??
There they go
Back to normal
Oh well …
… snap a pic through the fence
Off to Downtown Santo Domingo …
