This week’s only in the DR photo was taken within Central Romana, of a man doing a little bit of painting….


I was mesmerised by this man painting the edge of the path – as instead of removing any of the grass he just painted rightover it and where it is thickest he just continued painting around it. Presumably, the point of painting the edge of the path is to make it look neater (although I’m not sure about the choice of color), unformatunatly the ‘neater’ effect has very definitely not been achieved – if anything the path now looks even more mess than it did before.

I imagine the man was told to paint the edge of the path – and paint the edge of the path he has, so what went wrong? Should he have been told to remove the grass or should he have had the sense to remove it himself?
