So... we arrive in Santo Domingo and the first thought... WOW - I'm in the Caribbean!!!! ... Ok.. I really don't realise it... but... that's the fact... and ... omg.. it's hot! Definitely! Over 30 C! So we take our baggage and leave the airport. There are 2 people from our company which pick us up. We drive into the Capital City Santo Domingo. Our hotel is in the colonial part of the town. There are already so many impressions! So many new things. We drive along the sea. It's still amazing... I already know that I will come back! 

So we arrive in our hotel and I move into my single room. Like an hour later we go out for a dinner. In the lobby we meet some guys from Usa. Was very funny to talk with them. We take place onn the next corner in a cute restaurant with great food. Of course I had the typical Dominican food... That means fish, beans and rice! I love it! We meet a woman from the same company. But she's from Haiti. She tells us a lot about the situation in the Dominican Republic, the war in Haiti... and other interesting storys,...

We walk a little bit through the streets and see the house of Columbus and other historical monuments. In the hotel do we have our first drink of this trip! 

The others go to bed. I take my lap top, go down to the hotel lobby and write my first impressions down and upload photos. The guy from Usa is also there and we talk a lot and change our mail adresses! So... hours later I go to bed and sleep for the first time in the Caribbean!! What a great feeling!!
