On Monday morning, we got up at 4:30 in the morning to catch a ride with some dear friends down south to the Capital. They dropped us off at the Metro station and we weaved our way through the rush hour crowds and secured a seat for Rebecca and the kids. One of the great things in this country is that, although most drivers would never, ever consider stopping for you (or a little old lady) to cross the street, on the subway kids and elderly folks will always be given a seat, and there are even special parking spots at grocery stores for pregnant ladies.
|This is actually from a different trip, but it gives you an idea of the work they've done to beautify the Metro stations. Best of all, every major station has a small library and technology center, generally with A/C!|
|After another couple hours of waiting, we were on our way, official residents of the Dominican Republic!|
