Walking around the other night I happened upon this nice bullet hole in a store window which reinforced the idea to move. Not to mention the INCREDIBLE amount of litter and trash that these people leave lying around. Something odd about the Dominican culture that they don't like or believe in using trash cans. But, I must add, from a "photographic" point of view it's been very rewarding. I have taken thousands of interesting photos while living here.
If you're ever in the market for an area where the people are filthy and hate you... try Inwood, it's great!
