We went south to the capital city to get a bunch of paperwork done and to start others as well as celebrate a wedding this past week. I had so many things to blog about while we were away but did not have my laptop with me. However, now that I am back at home and staring at this screen, I remember nothing that I was all excited to write about. So, while waiting for my brain to get back in gear, I will post some photos instead.
a mecca of American Fast Food chains….we did not visit all of them, just some. Unlike Peru, eating at fast food chain restaurants here is much more affordable than at local restaurants. I discovered Sara Lee’s pecan pie sold at KFC and that was my addiction the entire time we were there. My excuse would be that I was celebrating Canadian Thanksgiving all week long, if anyone should ask. I had a BigMac, shared half a frosty with my husband, had some pecan pies, Wendy’s chili and rice, and KFC with coleslaw. A smorgasbord of every unhealthy food in a span of 5 days. It is now back to rice and beans until we have to go back down south later this week to pick up our resident visas and Dominican ID’s.
Have a peek at the pics and enjoy!
Apparently Christmas commercialism comes early to the DR, just like in North America. Santa and the elves, along with angels, reindeer and colourfully decorated Christmas trees were in every store. However, I caught sight of these and had to seriously wonder about the people who made them. There is Santa, either with his back out or actually boogying to some rhythm and then there is…..Strawberry Shortcake when she finally becomes a grandma? You tell me what you all think!
