If I timed this correctly my friends in Montreal will be hunkered down for the day due to a heavy snowfall warning, and my friends in Winnipeg will be waking to up -30 degrees celcius temperatures. It seems that DR has some magnificent beaches, who knew? My friend Martin Esteves took me to Sosua with his family on Saturday. It was marvelous the water was very warm for the Canadian (rather cool for the Dominicans). If it is any consolation to you I got a pretty bad sunburn. The drive was really nice too.
