HOME SWEET HOME

BIENVENIDOS !!! WELCOME !!!BIENVENU !!!

There's a song in Dom. Rep. that describes the beauty and enchanment of this (my) beautiful country, I'll try to be honest to it's soulful meaning as I translate it for you.

Existe una cancion que describe la belleza y el encanto de este mi hermoso pais, tratare de traducirlo en otros idiomas tan honestamente a su sentido espiritual como me sea posible para otros.

Il y a une chanson dans Dom. Rep. cela décrit la beauté et enchanment de ceci (mon) le beau pays, j'essaierai d'être honnête à c'est le sens mélancolique comme je le traduis pour vous.

NO HAY TIERRA TAN HERMOSA COMO LA MIA,
(Beauty there's not like my homeland)
(IL n'y a pas la terre aussi beau que le mien)
BAÑADA POR EL MAR DE BLANCAS ESPUMAS,
(Bathen by white foamy seas)
(Baigné au bord de la mer de mousse blanche)
PARECE UNA GAVIOTA,
(Seems a seagull)
(Semble un seagull)
DE BLANCAS PLUMAS,
(Of white feathers)
(De plumes blanches)
DORMIDA EN LAS ORILLAS,
(Sleeping at the edge)
(Endormies dans les bords)
DEL ANCHO MAR,
(Of the broad seas)
(Des mers larges)
QUISQUEYA,
(As The Hispaniola island was called by the Taino Indians)
(Comme L'île de Hispaniola a été appelée par le Taino Indiens)
TIERRA DE MIS AMORES,
(Land of my loves)
(La terre de mes amours)
DE SUAVES BRISAS,
(Of soft winds)
(De brises lisses)
Y LINDAS FLORES,
(And Pretty flowers)
(De jolies fleurs)
DEL FONDO DE LOS MARES,
(From the bottom of the seas)
(Du fond des mers)
LA PERLA QUERIDA,
(The wanted pearl)
(La perle voulue)
QUISQUEYA,
DIVINA,
(Divine)
EN MIS CANTARES,
(In my songs)
(Dans mes chansons)
LINDA QUISQUEYA,
(Pretty Quisqueya- pron= "keeskeyah")
(Joli Quisqueya)
YO TE COMPARO CON UNA ESTRELLA,
(To a star I compare you)
(Je vous compare avec une étoile)
LA ESTRELLA SOLITARIA,
(The lone star)
(L'étoile solitaire)
QUE ALUMBRA MI VIDA,
(That lighst up my life)
(Qu'illumine ma vie)
NOS BRINDA SU LUZ.
(Gifts us it's light)
(Sa lumière nous offre)

    If you do travel to the Dominican Republic then you must definitely get some Larimar Jewelry. It is a beautiful stone and everybody will be have something to say about it when you go back home.
