Still image from La Lleva: Villa Melia- Dominican Republic, Let Us Take You To The Capital (Spanish)

Isaura, who lives in La Vega, travels to Villa Mella, Santo Domingo. She visits Jetsaida, who welcomes her into her house with a dance to the rhythm of congo, known as the Song of La Salve. Jetsaida offers her pork rind and cassava prepared by her mother. Both work together in Jetsaida's family farm. They feed animals, milk the cows, and go horseback riding through the countryside. Afterwards they tour the capital by subway and visit the Mirador Norte Park, where they ride water and land bikes.
