New Painted Light Poles

The group Transitando Movimiento Artistico, the group responsible for painting the light posts / postes de luz around the Colonial Zone, got permission to continue their work brightening the Colonial City with unique art work on the light and electric posts around the city.

They spent last Saturday adding their art to the poles around the block of the Catedral de Santo Domingo. The area includes Calle Isabel la Catolica, Calle Padre Billini at the Plazoleta Padre Billini, Arzobispo Portes and Calle El Conde at Parque Colon.

I love walking out my front door and seeing this art instead of a dirty pole. Great work. Hoping that they will continue making the Colonial City beautiful for us all.

This is a great video of the block where the new posts were painted. A wonderful view of the Colonial Zone area as well.

Feliz Navidad de el Presidente Danilo Medina

“The Merry Christmas caravan wishing all Feliz Navidad from the Dominican Republic President Danilo Medina. The music came to the Zona Colonial sharing its loudness at 11:30PM leaving a wake of car alarms and sirens in its path. It is loud. You might want to turn down the volume. Taken Saturday night, December 13, 2013, at 11:30PM on Calle Isabel la Catolica, Ciudad Colonial.”
