Go Galeras

The next day of travel from Playa Limon to Las Galeras was no easier than the last. I spent three hours crammed into the back of a decaying and dilapidated gua-gua (shuttle bus) with visions of my impending death flashing across my mind. People were getting on and off, grabbing bags of vegetables, luggage and whatnot, chatting easily with each …

Torsdag.
Denne dagen ble det ikke foretatt noe spenstig. Vi hadde en del praktiske ting som måtte ordnes, og dagen gikk stort sett med til dette.

Karim trengte et par sko som ble akseptert på restaurantene på all-inclusive hotellet vi skulle …

At some point early in the year, I became determined to escape the holiday madness of Christmas 2013. Someone had once said to me that if he had to choose whether to spend a thousand dollars on a trip to the cold or a thousand dollars on a trip to the heat, there was no question in his mind, he would opt for the heat. I had actually never thought of this option before, as my mother had always taken my sister and me to the snow every winter ...

... as we had purchased a tour. The tour was called "Cultural Highlights of Samana."

The documents warned of a long tender ride, pollution and poverty. I didn't think the tender was that long, taking only about 15 minutes. The other two were dead on. When we got off the tender on to the Samana dock the pollution stared us in the face. The water in the bay is filthy. There is no other word to describe it. The clarity was maybe a foot, and garbage floated ...

... people got seriously burnt. My factor 30 was pushed to its limits, but I evaded the burn. That night, there was a beach party in a beach bar for the peace corps with a huge mixture of locals and Americans getting drunk. It was really fun, but I sweated shed loads.

The next day we chilled at the nearer Playita which was just as incredible. Everyone was feeling a little ...

    La Rancheta was a wonderful place to stay, with spacious bungalows constructed in a jungle garden setting. The owner, Ron and his wife were incredibly hospitable and helpful.

    After seeing our first booking, and turned that down. Ronald welcomed us with open hands to his La Rancheta. Wonderful place where you feel that Ronald and his family is happy to have you there and takes good care of you. The breakfast was amazing, and the swimmingpool with natural flowing water was a delight. We strongly recomend it!
