Our day started out with a trip to the zona franca, or Free Zone in the city of La Vega. This is essentially a place where foreign (usually American) companies are allowed to set up factories and hire Dominican workers with little to no tax.

Then, we took inventory of our supplies for next years trip.
After a lunch of meat very similar to tapas, rice and watermelon, we left for Carnival!
We rode in a Ford Windstar minivan just like in the states!
We arrived in La Vega, the city famous for Carnival in the DR.
As we entered Carnival, it looked and felt like a mix between the ...
