On our Immigration day we visited the border between the Dominican Republic and Haiti. We were given a tour by Taino Tours which gave us an understanding of how the Dominican Republic and Haiti attempt to better their relations with one another by allowing Haitians to enter the Dominican Republic. The border was the first place in which this effort was evident since each Monday and Friday the border is open, and an international market trade takes place between the Haitians and Dominicans (which gives job opportunities to both). After, visiting the border we went to a new museum that described and showed the cultural differences between Haiti and the Dominican Republic. Then we went to the Binational market where the trade between Haitians Dominicans takes place. (Almost like the flea market back in the United States just more chaotic).
