Went to La Romana, Dominican Republic for a week! I love the Dominican! I should’ve taken more pics but I did take some food pics to share. I ate a lot….. Dinners are long when you consider 1-2 appetizer courses, entrée course and dessert course. Not having much of a sweet tooth I believe I only had a dessert two times. Like for real, lunches have a dessert course. I tried to eat lighter lunches like grilled fish, chicken, salads, etc and it was on average around 88′ and sunny so I didn’t have huge appetites during the day. But I suppose my midnight (or later) room service orders counteracted that…. I didn’t work out at all while on the trip but in my defense I did feel like I did a good amount of walking. 😉
Shrimp cocktail with mango mousse
“Mixed Grill” it was fish, pork, steak, shrimp, veggies
They called this dish “Ham” it was prosciutto, melon and manchego cheese
I didn’t take a picture of the dish “Stewed Pigeon” I tried…..it wasn’t bad.
We traveled to Santo Domingo for a day and it was pretty interesting. Santo Domingo was the first place Christopher Columbus discovered of the new world. We visited a bunch of sites including the church where Columbus’s ashes were brought to, we had to cover our shoulders and legs with shawls to get in. We also had a tour of his family palace that had all their original furniture and belongings still inside. One thing I did notice about the town of Santo Domingo is that the toilets do not have toilet seats. Like for real, it’s just a tank. I thought at first that I must have just encountered a broken toilet but as the day went on I realized that was not the case.
This was taken on the balcony of Christopher Columbus’s family palace, a view of Santo Domingo.
I want to go back already! Actually I want to move there.
