“This man was selling coffee beans on a stone beach in the Dominican Republic.  We had taken a rough ride over hard, rocky terrain to get to this secluded spot.  Despite the ride, it was an insight into how many people live there who aren’t connected to the tourism industry.

“We passed shacks in the woods with thin-looking farm animals standing outside them in the shade.  I soon realized by the children watching nearby, that these crude shelters were their homes and not the barns they appeared to be.”
