We all went to the same places, but each of us had our own personal experiences this week. It was a whirlwind of traveling and activities. We are exhausted, but happy to have spent this time together. We drove through or visited at least 30 different cities, visited two different potential humanitarian projects, and gave Wesley and Sheredith the experience of a lifetime. They handled the cultural shock pretty well. It was a delightful time with them, but I will let them tell their own story.
Everyone here in the DR is always trying to find ways to get a buck off of you. I noticed a bunch of seats at the beach but as soon as you would sit down on one someone would run up to you and say it would cost five American Dollars to reserve two of them. It is funny honestly because people would hold traffic for you to back out and you would think they were just being courteous until they come up to your door and ask for some money. There is almost not an hour when we were walking around that someone wouldn’t come and ask for a couple of bucks.
