City/Fort San Felipe Tour. Our tour-guide friend managed to arrange a taxi for us to tour the city, and see the day to day life of the Dominican people, the rich and the poor, through city ways and backend streets, unto typical towns and barrios, even dropped by his place and his cousins' before taking off again to local shops and factories, particularly the country's biggest rum factory, Brugal, and then to the historic Fort San Felipe.

One day is not enough for sure to learn the Dominican culture but one thing stood up, Dominicans pride themselves on their hospitality. They will go out of their way to make a guest welcome and comfortable. Family ties play an important role in their lives, and when possible, family and extended family live together or closeby. However, Dominicans and Filipinos share a common trait -- the art of imperfecting punctuality! Showing up between 15 to 30 minutes late is still considered on time! It is the Dominican time!

this is just behind the local shops where the new Carnival Cruise Line Port is being built... and who knows, the next time we come visit, this little forest behind the shops will all be gone!

I think this is clever creativity - a streetside Christmas tree!
