The Dominican Republic.

I visited this country for some winter sun at the end of last year. My wife booked us into an all-inclusive beach resort which was lovely but we didn't really see any of the country. I spent a lot of time reading about the history of the place, which is fascinating.

Here's a recent article and slideshow from the New York Times about the border between the Dominican Republic and Haiti.

1)I strongly suggest to all the other photographers to get a wife ready to check you in a all inclusive beach resort.
2)I strongly recommend to read the extra funny thread LeicaM8 is it any good on the lightstalkers page.
hilarious, start reading from the bottom.

I stongly suggest taking headphones when you go as the resort's entertainment is LOUD. I'm talking beach aerobics, variety shows, and cabaret at a volume that echoes all the way to Jamaica.

As much Rum as I could drink included in the price though. That's a deal sealer if ever I saw one.

ps - is a LeicaM8 like a coffeeM8?

ho ho ho
