We've just returned from a trip to the Dominican Republic for Green & Blacks and Paul and I had a truly incredible experience.

Rather than stay in hotels we stayed with families in the small town of La Laguna situated in the North. Consequently we lived as the locals did; without running water, flushing toilet facilities and most of the time electricity. We ate, worked and socialised together. The food was simple and often plucked from the nearest tree. To shower after a hard day's work in the heat we used a bucket and as little water as possible as it's in scarce supply.

We managed to capture some great images and footage so look out for more stills and films in the next few weeks!
