Culture Shock Series is a series of genuine, often amusing, short videos exploring the culture of the country we’re currently visiting, from the mouth of the people who experience it daily.
One of the things that really gets travelers to the country when it comes to culture shock is the modes of dominican transportation.
Europeans and North Americans whom have never left their countries and are used to taxis and busses can be overwhelemed, scared of, or just in awe of the way local Dominicans get themselves and their stuff from point A to point B.
For pictures illustrating some of the motorcycle anedotes, check out our previous post “Wait.. You’re Carrying What on your MOtorcycle?”
For the Guaguas and other transportation, you’ll have to come back in a few weeks. ;)
*Please note that not all views expressed in these videos are shared by us, the writers of WTaB. Rather they are intended as a peek into the actual culture and multitudes of views expressed by locals and expats alike. We tried to get as broad a spectrum of answers as possible, and included any and all answers (at least those that weren’t mumbled) We hope these videos will be amuzing to our viewers, but also a reflection of the culture for those who create it*
