Republica Dominicana

My bride and I have returned from a week in paradise. The Iberostar Punta Cana Resort should be rated SIX stars, not five, and it was worth every cent. The accommodations were fabulous; the service was attentive; the weather was gorgeous (it rained once, for 20 minutes, at 1 AM Thursday morning); the beach was breathtaking; and we had a marvelous, memorable vacation.

Toni went zip-lining over the jungle canopy; we dined at fabulous restaurants; the glass-bottom catamaran cruise of the nearby Caribbean was delightful; and we learned that the local liqueur, a rum-and-raisin brew called Mamajuana, is referred to by the resort staff as “Dominican Viagra.”

We met people from Russia, Sweden, Austria, Germany, Canada, and even a couple from the east side of Madison and two nice folks from Boscobel.

Now, I gotta buckle down on my “other jobs” and pay for it! Stand by for rants to resume in a day or so.
