You will have gathered that the weather conditions during the first part of our week in the Dominican Republic were unusual.
"The weather is never like this, at this time of year." How many times have you heard that?
It rained a lot. The winds were often light.
I heard various explanation from the local experts in Cabarete. A stalled front. Al Gore. Whatever.
But I think the explanation we heard from a waiter in one of the Cabarete restaurants one night was closest to the truth...
"God is angry with the Dominican people because we haven't been praying enough."
Pray harder Jose.
