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!

The hula-hoop!

 Pleased with herself playing skillfully with the hula-hoop.. just like any young girl around the world. Though she happened to draw a blank in the life lottery growing up in one of the poorest slum areas in Santo Domingo, Simon Bolívar.

Going to El Paraíso!

South west of Santo Domingo in Dominican Republic you will find Barahona and the beautiful winding road along the coast line. It passes by El Paraíso and Enriquillo. You can discover unique places like Bahia de las Aguilas. Keep going and you end up in Haiti!
