I finally got my first visit to Dominican Republic in August, 2006. Flew into Santo Domingo, rented a car, and promptly got
lost trying to find the hotel. I really need to try and learn some Spanish.
The driving was “Interesting” - I learnt one thing - red lights are for tourists and visitors NOT locals. On the Monday, Jim and I
drove up to San Francisco de Macoris - up their version of the M1 - not used to seeing horses on the motorway or traffic coming the
wrong way - again with the “interesting”.
The “road” from the “motorway” to the city was littered with roadworks and pot holes - I had to get a 4x4 for subsequent trips.
