A country unlike any other

The Dominican Republic is one of the most unique places in the Caribbean. To return to the DR is a feeling that, for me, is pure joy. I’ve been working in the Physical Therapy sites. I think it’s one of most important sites in the DR, because it helps people to recuperate after a procedure […]
