Today I feel good. Nothing in particular has happened, but I feel blessed. Woke up early and had breakfast at the Caribe Colonial. Then went back home and laid down to take a nap and woke up MANY hours later. Whew! I needed some rest.
Last night, I went to Byron's Think Pink soiree in his and Scotch's new apartment. It is right next door to Casa New Yorker. They are still working on getting things setup but it is really very nice. Old Colonial House with an open courtyard, expansive terrace and access to the roof. A nice selective crowd, open bar, great food, beautiful location = great party. I had to leave early, because I forgot that I told someone to meet me. From all reports, the party continued on til late. Downstairs from their apartment was another party going on. La Quinceañera, which are sweet 15 parties that celebrate the beginning of womanhood in Latin communities around the world. The young lady was very beautiful and had on a beautiful dress. I didn't want to intrude and take pictures.
I have some more pictures from Paul Culver. This time these are photos from Paul's trip to Altos de Chavon. If you are looking for a trip to get away from Santo Domingo, I can't recommend this trip more. Altos de Chavon is located in La Romana, which is about 2.5 hours from Santo Domingo.

I got a nice spike in visits to the blog recently. I noticed that I was getting referrals from Fleshbot. They liked the pictures of Carlos. I had sent an email to Rod, who runs the great blog Rod 2.0, about getting a link on his site. Rod informed me that he is also the co-editor at Fleshbot and he is responsible for the link. Thanks, Rod!! If you haven't been to Rod's site, please do yourself a favor. One of the few blogs that I have seen that is entertaining, informative, thought provoking and sssooooo comprehensive. The topics are wide-ranging and I check it out everyday.
