Once she got into town, we figured it was time to russel up some grub. We found a nice little American place, Big Dan's, serving up cheap hamburgers and the best fresh grouper I've ever tasted. There we sat and chatted with Pilar, the rambunctious 3 year-old daughter of the owner, and also talked with the kind managers of the Mexican restaurant, El Huekito, situated in the same little eating nook. Then it was back to the hostal for a little nappy-nap before heading back out at night. Things don't get heated up until about midnight in Las Terranas, so best to squeeze in some rest before then because you'll probably be out til the wee small hours of the morning. We woke up still a little hungry and decided to head into town for a snack before making our way to the party scene. We asked around for where we could find a cheap comedor (Dominican cafe) since we didn't want to spend a lot in the touristy restaurants located in the heart of town. Of course everyone was more than happy to help us and we had no trouble finding two nice young men, off-duty police officers, who kindly offered to take us to their favorite comedor. They payed for our meal and then led us out to one of their favorite spots for nightlife: la bomba Tu Drinks. A "bomba" is a gas station. But many bombas have a small restaurant/bar attached and at night these are converted into swingin' bachata and merengue dance centers. After a few beers and little bachata we decided to head back into another night club, La Bodega, in the town center. I can't say I was super impressed with La Bodega since when we first arrived they were playing old American music that was impossible to dance to. Nevertheless, the establishment was spacious, clean, and quite lovely with indoor and outdoor seating as well as a huge dance floor. And as the night progressed they began to play more Dominican music, luring us out to bust a few moves once again. We made our way home around 3:00 a.m., tired but happy, and immediately fell into a dreamy sleep.

The ride took about 15 minutes all in all.
