The warmth of the welcome in the Dominican Republic is very real. Great, radiant smiles everywhere, be it staff from these big tourist hotels that we have attended or people met outside.

Of course, I had a blast with children, who love to admire on the digital screen of the camera.

Come on, one last small series, to brighten this gray winter which I have so much trouble to get used to again ...

  1. @ Sylvie: Yes totally. I gathered all these beautiful smiles as much to share them with those of you who browse this page as for me ... A slack in the day? I click on this post and it's better!

    Yes, you have seen right. I was treated to the photo.

    But when I discovered it back, I was very disappointed: the two girls who are well trained to stuff the pose with the hundreds of passengers of each flight, are quite charming, but I, I close the eyes and I grimace, dazzled by the flash.

    I did not want to bring back this horrible picture. So you will not see her ... Sorry!

  3. Hello
    I see you're having fun in the Dominican Republic !!
    I enjoyed your comment on the music there, I had the same feeling of lack when I returned from Cuba (10 years already !!)
    I told you about mola-molas visible in Cherbourg .... and a friend saw one in August 2007 and he has a video, you can see it on his website:
    http://www.fcmovie.fr/
    (you go in his section "videos" then "various")

    For me the next trip will not be Thailand as expected but the Philippines (yes!), Stay in Sangat and Busuanga to see the Japanese wrecks.

  4. Hello Laurence!

    Yes, it was fantastic, this Dominican getaway, in the middle of winter ... I brought back some pieces of merengue and bachata to warm me up!
    😉
    Thanks for the link to the video. If I understand correctly, it remains for me to dive in the Channel (brrrr!) To see a mola-mola!

    I wish you a good stay in the Philippines. It must be something to see, these wrecks ... On a future trip, for me, maybe? In the meantime, I reoffend with Thailand: departure end of February !!! I look forward.
