Simon Bolívar and sunflowers


 Simon Bolívar. One of the poorest “barrios” of Santo Domingo named after the liberation hero. Conditions are worse than bad.

The president’s wife is leading a project in the slum area. The most visible change has been paintings of sunflowers on the walls of some houses!

One day at the beach!

Entering Jarabacoa!

 In comparison to the previous horse this one looks radiant and healthy.  People in rural Dominican Republic (and many Latin American places) are almost born in the saddle and it looks so elegant and easy..  Now me on the other hand after a couple of kilometers…!!??
