Independence Day

A Dominican woman sells food along a street during festivities to mark the Dominican Republic's 168th anniversary of its independence from Haitian rule in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. The Dominican Republic, which became independent in 1844, has prospered in recent years due to a robust agricultural sector and a large tourism industry. The Dominican Republic shares the same island, Hispaniola, with its poorer neighbor Haiti.
