Scenes from Dominican Republic

This would be an electricians worst nighmare.

Here is a typical butcher shop. Flies buzzing around the meat, an old tree stump used as a cutting block, and 30 degree temps without humiduty added. This almost turned me vegetarian.

Curtis was so excited to have Coke in a glass bottle!


Touring in the capital city of Santo Domingo.

All in all we had a great time. Toilet seats are not common in this country except for in hotels. Sitting on the cold pocelin was not the best and toilet paper was not always available. So when we arrived back in the US, I was happy. The kidss missed us lots and have informed us that we are not allowed to go on a long holiday without them, just little ones. It was hard not having communication with them other than email. We sent pictures home almost every day which they loved to see.

Looks like you guys had a wonderful time. It would have been a nice break. It is such a beautiful place but definitely a different lifestyle. I remember coming back from there appreciating the way things are here. But I did LOVE the beaches!! :)

Yes, the kids are not for you guys leaving for that long again. It was hard for you guys and them to not have communication for that long. Glad to have you home, too.
