I am having a wonderful time in Santo Domingo. It is hot here! The kind of hot where you sweat all day – in the shower, while you’re sleeping, and in the air-conditioning. I had some down time this weekend – I sometimes forget how nice that is! And have spent some time with friends, going to the movies, a concert at a church, out to eat etc. I think my Spanish is picking-up quite nicely. (I take it as a good sign that it is hard for me to switch back and think of a word in English.) Off to visit my sponsored child today…

Just a short little post to fill you in… I arrived safely on Thursday night in Santo Domingo. Thank the Lord that I made it through customs alright with my 3 checked suitcases, carry-on (containing four laptops,) and backpack! A friend picked me up from the airport and drove me to the house where I am staying with friends. I am more grateful than words can express for the amazing friends I have here and how wonderful they have been to me. I went in to the Compassion office yesterday to bring all the gifties and to visit with everyone there. It is very hot here, but perhaps not quite as bad as I imagined. It’s nice to be on vacation.
