We are told that this park across the street from our apartment will be green once the rains come. Right now, it doesn't look like a blade of grass could ever survive this drought! Still, people gather here to eat a picnic lunch in the shade while sitting on a cardboard-covered piece of "grass".
Space available is the rule of the road and the parking area! Maybe this gives an idea of how "tight" things are here in Republica Dominicana. Our parking space has to be entered and excited with very careful maneuvering! We've scraped the door only once.
