Easter in the Dominican Republic

Remembering my childhood I have all these great,bright and joy filled Easter week as we call it Semana Santa. We used to wake up really early to prepare all the food for the same day or the next day depending if we were going to the beach, go the river (El Rio) or staying at home. Our thing was spending it in family, eating and celebrating and often times praying through the day just to give thanks! Oh those were good old times…
