Heading Home From Bávaro

After leaving Santo Domingo on Friday, Frank and I spent the past four days at the Iberostar Grand Hotel Bávaro and sadly have to return home this afternoon. It has been perfect weather and we've spent our days either in the water or in the shade of cabanas. I am not one known for relaxing, but Frank convinced me that we should spend a few days here and he was completely right. I may get used to this...

Postscript: Frank wanted me to say that he is always right. I say haha!

Hello From Santo Domingo! 

Frank and I are in the Domincan Republic for our honeymoon and our first stop is in Santo Domingo for a few days.

Santo Domingo was founded in 1496 by Christopher Columbus's younger brother, Bartholomew, and served as the first seat of Spanish colonial rule in the New World. As the oldest continuously inhabited European city in the Americas, the Zona Colonial in Santo Domingo is full of amazing old buildings dating back four and five hundred years.

In our short time here so far we have had a chance to visit the oldest cathedral in the Americas, Cathedral of Santa María la Menor, which was constructed from 1512 to 1540, as well as the oldest still standing stone building in the New World, Casa del Cordon (1502), which now houses a bank.

In addition to the beautiful historic sights we have been impressed with how genuinely friendly everyone is here. As an example, while we were taking pictures in front of Cathedral of Santa María la Menor several people stopped to let us know that the entrance was down the street behind the building before heading along their way.

We've also had some delicious meals here from fantastic ceviche at La Taberna Vasca to sandwiches stuffed with ham, pulled pork, two types of cheese and green tomatoes at Barra Payan.

It has been a great two days so far and I am looking forward to exploring Santo Domingo more!
