In September 2022, hurricane Fiona took out one of the main roads going into the city. It is still under construction shutting down the flow of traffic and making rush hour worse. However, while the street is closed they are building a cable car and have plans to build elevated trains (similar to Santo Domingo, Chicago, and other major metropolitan areas). Lots of road work and changes are happening in the city.
Celebrating Dominican Independence day at the preschool. Feb 27 the country will celebrate their independence as a country. The country originally “established” by Christopher Columbus (really established by the natives called Taínos on the island and captured by Columbus) went through the hands of Spain, French, and Haiti for over 500 years before their independence from Haiti in 1844.
We are packing and getting ready to go to the Dominican in March. If you would like to make a donation, please pm for an address to send it to. I will be updating the list over the next few weeks.
