Arrived safe and sound in Santo Domingo last night, actually tonight, since I wrote this in advance. Here I am at the Sofitel, pictured right.
This hotel consists of three colonial mansions joined and converted into a hotel perched overlooking the river.
It's located in the heart of the perfectly preserved, 16th century old city - the jewel of Santo Domingo.
It has a pool. I brought my bathing suit. : -)
This sushi parlor's alarming sign is aimed at non-diners seeking only bladder refuge. The plumbing works fine for paying customers - if they aren't scared away first by the sign... : -)
My co-workers have nicknamed a junior colleague - they now only call him Borat, even on his birthday cake...
Poodles Porteños - These dogs were being walked on an autumn day in Buenos Aires, May 2006...
