Whether you like it or not, the song “Happy” by Pharrell Williams is here to stay. Part of its appeal, I think, is the simplicity of its refrain, easy enough to grasp for those with varying levels of English language proficiency. The video concept, too, is catching on fast for the same reasons: It’s uncomplicated, impromptu, and just good, old-fashioned fun.
Last night I came across this “Santo Domingo Colonial” version and I have to say it’s my favorite so far. People, young and old, locals and foreigners, dancing in colmados, in the streets of the Colonial Zone, in front of major landmarks, all having a great time.

I’m happy to be in Santo Domingo, happy to have a forum to share my experiences, and now, I’m happy to present this video to you. Enjoy.
