And in the category of unfinished business, I never really gave the final word on how excellent our Dominican Republic vacation was. Here are some key photos (courtesy of our friend Maarten from Belgium). For a guy who doesn't like heights, these were some major jumps at the highly recommended Damajaqua Cascades 27 Waterfalls.
Also, for a guy who doesn't like snakes, this was a mighty big boa constrictor who initially looked to be asleep, but quickly sprang into action and hissed at us, sending us scrambling away through the jungle.
Finally, for a guy who doesn't like earthquakes, I forgot to mention that we cluelessly enjoyed a 4.9 Richter earthquake one night while dining on street food. Our hotel manager, Carl, said the water splashed up in the pool.
