Koningsdam 2017, Day 30, La Romana, Dominican Republic

Well, originally, we were going to Cap Cana, Dominican Republic but….  the weather wasn’t conducive to tendering operations so the Captain came up with a port change, La Romana. This  is a new port for me so I headed out this morning to see what it had to offer.  The visit was interesting but it was not a place I would care to visit again.  Movements here were tightly controlled by the police to the point where there basically were just a few streets where tourists were allowed.  I am used to traveling the back roads and streets less traveled so I was less than thrilled.  All that aside, I did have a nice long walk touring the city before returning to the ship.
