Since the winds were nowhere to be found for another day, James and I rented a pair of motorcycles and set out to explore the DR countryside. We ended up going on a four-hour ride to the top of a mountain range to a town called El Camito. The trip took us through numerous villages and towns along the way. There we had an incredible lunch in a restaurant overlooking Roco and Santiago. Incredible views. I will have to say the mountain roads were an adventure -- you never knew what was going to come around the next turn from the opposite direction! My bike threw its chain twice. The second time I was putting the chain back on and a man came out of nowhere (his shop was the bottom of the hill). He straightened and tightened the tire. I didn't have anymore problems. Thank you Lord!
