Today is here, in the Dominican Republic a holiday, the "Día de la Independencia".
On 27 February 1844, Santo Domingo separated from Haiti and became independent of the Spanish crown. The country gave itself the name Dominican Republic.
A friend of mine shared this video with me today that I also want to share with you.
Because: the Dominicans can be really proud of their country.
Not only on their breathtaking nature, their cheerfulness and openness - there is also a lot going on in terms of their standard of living.
For example, child labor up to the age of 18 is forbidden. Bravo! Where can you find such a thing?
Sure, not everything is pink here...nowhere. We have problems everywhere or create new ones. We, all over, can and must do many things better...
But today: a happy holiday to all Dominicans!
