We are staying in the casa Blanca in the neighbourhood of Los Charamicos in the city of Sosua. The house is so beautiful. It's white inside and out, like many of the buildings here and has 2 rooms, a kitchen, bathroom, and a living room dining room combo. The house is less than 2 feet from the street and about 10 steps from a cliff that overlooks the bay. The view is amazing. The dark flat horizon stretches out to the left interrupted only by a few boats. Across the bay are some fancy looking hotels, and then we have a view of the entire Sosua Playa (beach). The waves crash loudly under the cliffs and crawl up the sandy playa just until they touch the legs of our blue and green lounge chairs. The food is lovely, rice and beans daily often with chicken, fish, or fried plantains, and right to us in the beach.
The streets are full of people sauntering to and from the market, motos, and lots of little dogs. Mostly really little dogs that kindof look like chiwawas but really resemble little pigs, especially when they lie down. When we were in town the other day we noticed one of the small pig dogs that seemed to have been dyed red. We don't know why. Things are different here, but we love it.
