The next day I am supposed to get to Punta Cana, a supermarket of resorts. I have succumbed to temptation and booked myself in a multi start resort for a night. the drive is long (about 4 hours) and eventful. A motor bike rams into my car from behind, while i am stationary and reading my map. The rider is injured and a crowd soon gathers around us. I have been warned that that these situations dont work out well for travelers. I try to tell the injured guy that i am sorry that he's hurt but i am not to blame, i was standing still while he ran into me. Can you imagine how i would try to get this idea across to a guy in spanish!!

Although he is injured, he sees reason and i can drive away from there. I was in such a hurry to get away from a potentially trouble some situation that i did not thank him or offer any help (like a ride to the doctor). Self-preservation trumped over those niceties.

The resort at punta cana is like a dream. ideal beach, swaying palms, wonderful pool with a sunk bar.. But tropical storm noel has to roll in just as i rolled into the resort. The whole day is spent watching natures fury, a spectacular sight.

The storm blows over my next morning and the next morning I am rewarded with a cloud less sky and near empty beaches.

I mull over the thought of staying there another day, but I decide against it. and its on to Cortecito.
