Okay so here is my first official update of life in the D.R. This is an absolutely BEAUTIFUL country with lots of dancing and cerveza drinking everywhere! I spent the first four weeks living with a host familia in teh capital, Santo Domingo. My family was awesome and my host ¨mom¨ is 24 years old and definitely one of the fabled ¨dominican women with cinnamon tans.¨ She is a far cry from my host mom in Haiti who had gold teeth and weighed about 200 pounds. Now I am in a new training area, a small village near the beach town of Cabrera with 10 other trainees for our technical training. We have five weeks here and it is gorgeous. My host dad makes wicker rocking chairs every night and i have two brothers and one sister living with me. today all of the trainees are going to a beahc that is supposedly got the white sands and blue water that the caribbean is famous for.
Spanish is coming slowly to put it mildly. I can pretty much get across what I need to say , but usually end up saying things like Ï am eating the cow yesterday¨ Everyone must think Im REALLY smart! (I just realized that what I thought were quotation marks are actually little dots, and i cant seem to find the quaotations, sorry about that!)
I miss you guys all SO MUCH and i cant wait to hear news from home. I got one letter from Mom about a week or two ago , but we havent been getting mail very frequently. I promise some from me is on its way. Keep me updated (btw, has Britney had her baby yet)!
