what made you happy this weekend?
hydration is very, very good
the caribbean sun is super intense
i LOVE hearing ben speak spanish, especially dominican spanish!!
i love learning about ben’s personality in spanish; he still cracks a lot of jokes and makes people laugh in spanish
the dominican diet (a term coined by ben) is definitely a rite-of-passage
when you drive in the d.r., brace yourself, just brace yourself. and don’t blink.
i really want to move to a tropical island. if it weren’t for malaria and dengue, we would’ve just stayed in the d.r.
ok, i do like the fact that i can brush my teeth with tap water in the u.s.
true vacation allows you to forget you work full time and go to school full time--- and things don’t stand still while you’re away
ben was only 19 when he moved to the d.r. and influenced so many lives for good. meeting the people he met and baptized into the lds church really made my heart happy. i’ve never loved ben more.
- dominicans are beautiful. dominicans are energetic.
i just loved every minute. we can’t wait to go back.
and i learned a lot of other things too
i loved the aqua water outside the aquarium (well and everywhere)LOVE the city skyline behind the trees
and of course we loved the foooood:
la bandera, the most dominican a dish can be. it's simply: beans, rice and chicken but OH SO DELICIOUS!!!
and yes, we ate dinner in a cave:
can i go back now?
