Cities don’t tend to offer too much along the lines of nature but Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic is different. There are a number of beautiful places to visit. One of them being the “Tres Ojos Caves”. Crystal clear water, beautiful rock formations and free massage from by the fishies.

It’s Monday again and that means another Photo of the Week. On one of our recent visits to the local organic garden I decided to bring my camera. They don’t use any pesticides so bugs roam freely and happily. I saw a little lady bug on one of the plants and got down to his level. It’s amazing how different the perspective is of something so small.

This photo of the week was taken the day before we took our day trip to the permaculture farm. We stopped by a local hotel, which also has a mini permaculture farm going on, where I stumbled upon a pile of recently trimmed banana leaves on the floor. It had been raining all night so there where some nice water droplets to complete the picture.

Here in the tropics, it’s easy to get your hands dirty, but that’s only fair when it’s so easy to relax. We got down and dirty replanting banana suckers to help out the Taino Organic Permaculture Farm and got to enjoy a refreshing dip in the river, deliciously fresh food, and an unbeatably quiet night in return. Read all about how to plant a banana circle, and why we love our life!
