My intent was to get to Santo Domino as fast as possible from Punta Cana. Needed to catch a plane. Driver explained that taking the bus to Higuey in the next ten minutes was better than waiting around for the bus direct to Santo Domingo another 1.5 hr. Once in Higuey, buses run every 30 mins. Only two or three a day run out of Fruili, next to Punta Cana. I hear a taxi from Punta Cana to Santi Domingo is $200.

Anyways, what a surprise to see the cathedral out the bus window. I had seen the image passing by while googling DR. And the bus stopped right ok front of it. Rather than taking the next connection, decided this is a chance not to be missed. I schlepped my bags over and up the walk into the most beautiful modern chapel. Kitsch, and modern gothic at once. A New Year's Day Mass was in service. I was embraced by the believers at intervals, and wooed with Latin chants.

If you find yourself lost to the pressures of travel and the excesses of vacation, a sanctuary such as this is a haven of solace.

We had a personal guide to take us in to Higuey to see the Basilica.
In fact both trips to the Dominican Republic we have visited and we see something different each time.
