i'm sitting here, awake because i am an old lady and incapable of sleeping late anymore, and thinking about how i only have two more days left. two more days of relaxing and late breakfasts, rum and rooftop sunbathing, walking hand in hand with my love down cobbled streets....sigh. so i'm not going to take a lot of time to talk about the trip yet. i'll save that for later, when it's over. i think that if i do it now, everything will dissolve away. nope, not ready for that yet. but here's a bit of what we saw on our first day in santo domingo.
