What a better way to finish off a trip to the museum than with a trip to none other than an American embassy in disguise? Yay BK!
At the end of this week we were able to travel to Bonao Lake. For those of you from Vegas, it’s like a little Lake Mead. It’s a man made lake that was very refreshing after a hot day. We spent the night there camping out on a baseball field at some friends of Escuela Caribe’s house. It was amazing how giving and hospitable these people were even though they had very little. They welcomed us with open arms and we spent some time helping them finish to build their house. It was the first time I’ve seen Dominicans playing baseball as well and while they weren’t anywhere near Pedro Martinez quality, it was still fun to watch them enjoy the sport. We also got to enjoy some DR sport fishing which was an interesting experience. Their idea of a fishing pole is some line wrapped around an old shampoo bottle or in one of the girls’ cases, an old stick of roll on deodorant that had hair on it. It was pretty funny. We caught only tiny fish off the dock but it was a good time. We came back the next day and it’s been nice to have some time off! Here’s some pictures:
