Arrived in the DR - a little scared by our surroundings.  There was some kind of industrial area along side of the ship - a strange mix of beauty and ugliness. 

Lots of people just stayed on board the ship.  Malcolm even secretly told me to stay away.  But I eventually I got up the energy to walk off the ship.  There was a little shopping area - just a big warehouse with discount liquor and cheap souvenirs.  I didn't give it much of a chance - turned around and got back on board.

That evening was Classic Disco T-Dance - started while still in port.  We left an impression on DR - there can be no doubt.  Sunset during tea as we sped away toward Curacao.

That night - made up for the lack of events up in the first nights.  Saw Miss Richfield 1981's "I've Got a Heart On for You".  Nothing like a little psycho-analysis from Miss R to help you through your week.

Stayed up long enough to check out the hypnotist - Michael Swenson.  Gotta love that he gets his "subjects" to full strip on stage - but gotta hate that he's the only one to actually see it.
