Oh akusemnandi :)

Bekumnandi kakhulu kengoku.

Hi, this was really useful as we wasn't sure whether to go to Saona Island but after watching your clip, we are going! thank you

It was definitely worth. Use seapro as it was cheaper than uvc. Thank you for your comment.

You guys are really always on the go. Never a dull moments. I really love watching you. That looked like a wonderful trip.

We had so much fun in this trip. We lost two phones but we did not let that deter us. Thanks my friend for your comment.

I have to see water like that..... cause wow!!!!

BTW, if you decide to go to DR go to the Caribbean side, cause that is where beautiful water is.

the seem unreal, I did not think water like that existed. Though Cape Town beaches are beautiful, that water seemed unreal, except you know you are in the ocean. The natural pool is so shallow and so beautiful. I had so much rum lol. thanks.

Off topic where did kit get that dress from when she wants to hold the monkey

I will ask her. But I think she got it from Forever 21 :D

Mama Dee I would like you to do a live and tell how us about your new hair routine.

I will definitely.

Great video!! The water is so beautiful. Great work capturing all the memories and I love the background music!

Thank you Carrie! We had an awesome time.

Mama Dee you look amazing. The place looks nice. I know you were only a tourist, but did you encounter any racism as dominicans (even the black ones) are known for their hatred towards black people. Any unpleasant experiences?

MamaDee cool.

there were lots of Haitians there. The photographer for our photoshoot was Haitian. I think they loved that we were African and we tipped a lot lol.

MamaDee true. Haitians hold the lower positions and are treated very badly. Maybe your lighter skin tones is the reason they were nicer to your family. Quite sad what colonization do to people.

thanks for your comment Nita. One more thing I will say is, though majority of those serving did not mind even telling us they were Haitian, I know one Haitian guy who did not want to discuss it. He was in management. Maybe he is fearing messing things up for himself. Many people though my husband was from the Dominican republic and they thought my daughter and I were Brazilian lol (because of our locs). But we were very clear about where we are from (South Africa but live in the US)

This topic is very baffling to me not because you raised it (I've seen it a lot online) cause I honestly did not encounter any. If anything everyone was literally hugging us and so happy to see us. I think because we are South African we were very open to everyone, especially the servers of all stripes (most were brown or dark skin people and I really want to make a video on this but I don't know exactly how to tackle it). Never encountered any issues.

MamaDee, let me tell you a story You know, I remember the first time I saw an elder's bum exposed in public. An overweight woman was alighting the taxi in Gauteng in 2010. I had just arrived here and she was wearing pants that were soft enough that when she bent forward her bum (the crack) showed in its full force followed by her underwear which began halfway down her bum. I was thinking about the woman's bum the whole trip home. I asked myself, 'Why was I so shocked and disturbed?' I didn't care that everyone else was also embarrassed for her as they looked away. 'Why did I keep looking instead of looking away too.' I realized it was probably a regular occurence in the City where women were liberal enough to wear pants and tops that don't cover the belt. I realized I was shocked more because I'd never experience it before and decided it should not be a rare sight. We should not even look away, the bum is no less than a forehead in my opinion. It is a fully functional important part of the body. It covers the part we don't want to see, the anus. I decided I like bums. OK it sounds perveted but I mean it in the most innocent way you could imagine. I didn't stop thinking about the woman's bum. So one of the things that fascinate me about South Africa is that, my mom has a photo of her first children at around 3 years in Mahikeng in the 70's and their cousins. Some child was naked and another had pants only and another only a top. When I was about 9-10 years old on the streets we played koi (skipping) with tumbles and some boys/girls had torn underwear and it was not an issue. The bum was just a bum. Fast forward to 2018, a 3 year old girl/boy may not wander about without underwear (nappy). Just realized now that kids stop wearing nappies later than back in the days of the white towels. I digress, a 3 year old today has to cover. South Africa has progressed into modernity at lightning speed. This week a 103 year old woman passed away and her possessions included photos of black women in a village walking around bare chested in 1960s. I find it amazing that it is unlikely this still happens anywhere in South Africa today. Yes, looking at your dancing in your swimming costume covered with a top reminded me of the taxi woman's bum. (I hope you are laughing at this point). X

Funny story. But you had to compare her to mama Dee?

Laughing..(my whole body). Nice! (I'm too old now to care what people think, so I feel more free)

lol I was laughing while reading (until you compared her bum to my whole body lol

What a great trip before your son goes off to college.

I hope you had a wonderful time.

No we stayed at Secrets Royal Beach.

MamaDee did you all stay at one of the Elegance resorts? My husband and I were at the Elegance Mirage last week for a wedding. The beach and some of the resort looks the same.

yes it was awesome they thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you!
