    Reed & I tasted the Mamajuana at a local shop and it was STRONG. It felt like I was gonna grow hairs on my chest.

    I bought a Larimar earring & bracelet for my Goddaughter, some Santa Domingo coffee, a coral earring & necklace for me and some Brugal rum. My MIL bought us a faceless Taino wood doll.

    The shopping and bargaining was good in Higuey. I actually paid $40 for all my items.

          The mamajuana IS strong - that's why they call t "Dominican Viagra" ~ but we drank it every day and brought plenty home. Now we and my brother make our own from the herbs we brought home and it's always a hit when we have people over! When you make it on your own, you can add more honey and red wine to sweeten it up a bit and the more you make it and let it sit, the better it will taste.

                    I collect dolls and now fascinated with the faceless doll.

                    So since we are sharing thought I'd share pics.

                    I would love to add these to the OTT. What about Dominican instruments? Maraca's are easier to find but I understand they use the guira, can't find those to use as favors and 'couple salutes'. ummmmm

                      TLC4Rock, those are so beautiful! That's for posting a pic. I know quite a few quests of mine that would love those.
