Photographer's Note

I was in the border with the town of Pedernales in Domincan Republic. This place is so interesting because to get to Pedernales in D.R there is a desert (I never relized D.R has a desert), in this place there is nothing there at list for one hour, suddenly there is Pedernales, the last city of the D.R in the border with Haiti. Once aweek week, there is a market and they trader and sale close, food, clothes and other things. I have the chance to cross the bridge in a dry creek and I stayed in this town for a few minutes. The first thing I saw was the UN camp, is militar area ,is like a fortress and very impressive. Latter this clinic, I saw this ladies and cath my attention the woman with the baby and I desired take some pictures very discret however I disturb a little the ambience and how you can see the other person saw me, but she does not say any, latter to walk in some streets I back to the D.R because I have a short permission to cross the border and my guide was pushing me to return.
I like the expression of this lady and I would like to spend more time in this amazing country, however 45 minutes from there was Port au Prince but I did't knew, until the next day. I hope some day I will return
