Yesterday was carnaval in Santo Domingo. At the start of the weekend it didn't seem like the weather was going to cooperate. We are in a drought situation right now and we have not had sufficient rainfall in the last several months. Since late last week the weather has been overcast, breezy and cool. It looked like it would rain at any moment. But it didn't until Saturday. Which is the day of Mario's birthday celebration. Everything went off like a hitch. Great carnaval, though it started late and I didn't have enough light for photos. One thing back in force again was all the men dressed as women. Loved it.
