Goat Tip of the Day
If you're someone who gets squeamish at the sight of roadkill, or a teenaged girly girl, you'll want to heed this advice. Do NOT ride in a front or window seat on a bus while traveling in a third-world country. It just so happened that on my trip, the girliest of all girly girls were sitting in the front of the bus. We're driving along the interstate, when suddenly we see goats trying to cross the road! Our Dominican driver slammed on his brakes and tried to steer to avoid the ensuing carnage, but was unable to, and with a loud smashing sound, nailed the goat, much to the girly girls' dismay. There was a shriek of panic, and many tears shed by the girls, but the fate for the goat, I'm sure, was far worse. So, my advice is, if things like that freak you out, you're better off not seeing.
