Very poor area in the Dominican Republic; where animals and humans are living in very close proximity.

After leaving this place, it was hard to imagine living in this situation as the stench from the mixture of animal manure, urine, and rain water were right outside these homes that were not actually air tight. Having grown up around farm animals and scraping manure into large pits, it was not as shocking to see and smell such stench. But to have it so close to the homes was surely frightful and concerning because of the possibility of diseases to those living so close by, especially the kids who play in the area.
