Visiting Los Frios

August 17, 2008

The one thing I have noticed most about being in the DR are that my senses are heighten to the tenth power.  The sounds, sights, and smells here constantly suprise and excite me as I first arrived in the capital and later spent a few days in San Juan.  We arrived in a tropical storm which was fine, just alot of rain.  We toured the capital and then took a two hour bus ride to San Juan, the biggest city near Los Frios and the only place to get electricity and internet.  It is a two hour ride in the back of an open bed truck up a mountain to Los Frios.  We will be leaving today, as the road was washed out the day before.  It is amazing here.
