Dominican Republic is Here

Santa Domingo

Santa Domingo

From Princess in the Dominican Republic, I got this awesome postcard. My first from this country and my second from a Caribbean island. Princess tells me that this postcard is of a part of the city known as the “Colonial Zone.” The country had 4 dates of independence and I am pretty sure that there are few countries that can boast that number of dates of independence. The country is located on the island of Hispanioala and is bordered to the West by Haiti. It is home to an estimated 10 million people and its capital is Santa Domingo. Quite a fascinating tale, its history, definitely worth a read. At any rate, I thank you, Princess, for an awesome postcard!
