A Day In Ojo De Agua

I was recently visiting the parental units in Dominican Republic and we took a drive to Salcedo. I asked Dad to stop at the Museo de las Hermanas Mirabal and we ran into his old pal, Jaime David Fernandez Mirabal, nephew of the revolutionist and heroic Mirabal sisters who were murdered during the Trujillo regime. Jaime David is former VP of the island and is the current Secretary of Environment and Natural Resources.

It was an unexpected and nice reunion. Jaime David has recently achieved the beautification of small towns like Salcedo by painting murals representing the country’s history.

  1. WOW that's amazing! I've been there twice and actually met the surviving sister Dede, it was an emotional experience for me. That's great though, how exciting!
