VOGUE publishes article about the Dominican Republic to clear controversy.
Since last week Vogue magazine has been on the lips of Dominicans, after it published an article with a photo of the Bay of Samaná in which it is observed full of garbage
At the time, the person in charge of said photograph, the environmentalist Carmen Danae, said that she was only trying to expose a truth, a justification that was not accepted by many.
The problem lies in the same publication highlighting the beauties of other destinations in the world, while the Dominican Republic only portrays the ‘ugly’ side, ignoring how good it positions us as one of the most visited Caribbean destinations.
The issue continues to speak, and that is that now the fashion magazine published an article to do justice to the controversial photo. Under the title “10 reasons why the Dominican Republic should be on your must see list”,
Lucile Tranzer Hugo, highlights the most wonderful and emblematic places in our country to demonstrate that we are much more than polluted beaches.
“Istill remember the one-way flight to the Santo Domingo airport, 20 miles east of the city, in the Dominican Republic. My 11-year-old self couldn’t believe I was moving from sub-Saharan Africa to the Caribbean. My biggest concern was that I didn’t know anything about Latin American culture and, more importantly, I didn’t know a single word of Spanish, which seemed like a scary thought when you are a kid and start a new life on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean. ”Lucile Tranzer Hugo
This is how the web article begins, in which Tranzer Hugo tells his experience after having lived four years in the Dominican Republic, which he classifies as one of the most enriching of his life.
“From the country’s rich history to the wonderfully diverse cultural mix, to truly amazing beaches, there will always be a special place in my heart for the island,” writes the author.
