Juan Pablo Duarte Birthday Parade Dominican Republic
This morning, while sitting by the road and drinking coffee, a parade came marching down the street. I asked the clerk at the desk the reason for the parade, and she told me that it was for Juan Pablo Duarte. Duarte is considered the architect of the Dominican Republic's independence from Haiti in 1844. You can read more about him in English translation here via Google Translate, or here in Spanish. In the meantime, enjoy the parade!
