1870 – 1872       Seeks unsuccessfully to be annexed by United States
1872 – 1916        Santo Domingo
1916 – 1924        Occupied by United States (which missed the 1870 invitation by 46 years)
1925 – 2000       Santo Domingo
2000 – 2010      Cruise ships
2010 – 2012       Cruise ships with WiFi, so passengers can access Facebook.

The most popular spice mix in Santo Domingo is sofrito and is rubbed on meats and sauteed.

I imagine that explains much of this country’s history.

Bacon!
