Dominican Republic: Tuesday

Posted by on 17 Feb 2009 | Tagged as: my life.

We had a breakfast of eggs and bacon (I only had one small piece of bacon–I’m trying not to put on too much weight on this trip). We also had this type of fruit juice, which is a mix of 5 different types of fruit. Oh yeah, we also were served papaya, which I have never eaten before. Now, papaya is my favorite melon fruit.
Today we went to a local Christian school about a mile from where we are staying. I got to ride in the back of a pickup truck with our supplies, that made for a bumpy ride on the pothole filled side streets.
At the school, we did two presentations of our Jambi program. The one the morning was in English–most of these students had lived in New York for a time before being sent back here to get out of the harsh environment in NY.
This evening I got to go shopping around town. We went to a Supermarket which is actually probably the largest store I’ve ever been in. It is much larger than our walmart stores–that surprised me a lot. It had a first floor grocery store about 2/3 the size of an entire walmart, and then a second story department store above that. This entire store was packed with people (like walmart is on a Friday night).

Tomorrow we are getting up early for a 6 am prayer meeting! I gotta go to bed now!

    That is not underwear. It is Keith’s new swimsuit.

    I know papaya rocks right.

    I remember in the Dr Jason was riding with equipment in the back of the truck and at a stop light he tried to tell a pedestrian “god bless you” in Spanish. He mis pronounced it and said “God is meatballs”

    The man just stared at Jason and so Jason repeated it a few times finally he just stuck his hands in the air and yelled, “SAMMY SOSA!!” as the truck drove away.

    That was funny.
