Dominican Republic 1: Update 7

Posted: Wednesday, June 27, 2018

By Hattie
Today was a fun day being "typical tourists." We started out the day by heading to a money exchange so we would be ready to blow it all in a very short time. Our hosts then took us to a large area resembling a warehouse full of small shops where we were able to buy tons of small souvenirs for ourselves and for our people back home. We also stopped by a supermarket to fill up on snacks for the day. Then it was time for the BEACH! There was tons of laughter and smiles as everyone ran into the VERY salty water. Several hours of beach fun were enjoyed before finally returning back to the hostile for the evening. Another fun part of our day was having a hip-hop lesson from one of the hosts. Overall, it was an extremely fun day and a great way to have fun together.
