Dominican Day 29

March 30, 2015

I don’t really have an update for you. Today was a rather uneventful day apart from me getting slightly lost during my mountain walk in the evening. I walked further than I normally walk and kind of lost my bearings on the way back. I kept calm throughout and just trusted that I’d get back home safely and in time for the 7pm curfew that Brad lovingly gave me. Needless to say, I made it back home at 7:08 with my legs tightly crossed as I fumbled through my bag in search of the keys. I thought I was going to pee my shorts but don’t worry I made it to the bathroom too 😉

Being that it was mostly a carefree day, I decided to go sans makeup. I’ve been told that Dominican men don’t discriminate. They’re interested in all women – short, tall, big, ugly, skinny, pretty, old, etc. I was curious to see if I’d receive the same attention without my face painted. I had a few human mosquitos ask if I wanted a moto taxi ride somewhere but apart from that, it was a relatively peaceful walk. I suspect it’s mainly because I was walking through more secluded areas and not along the main road.

It also rained for most of the day, which means that Pincho’s wish for it to rain came true. This is the first sight of rain in a few weeks. Given the heat we’ve been having, it was much needed.

Well off I go now back to my book, “Five Sons and a 100 Muri of rice.” I suppose I should also do some lesson planning for April too … *sigh*

Oh, before I forget, just thought I’d let you know that I discovered today that the gas stoves here work of a propane tank. While cooking yesterday evening, the tank must have emptied. And yes, I made that super awesome pasta dish. Yum 🙂

    1. Hi Melissa! I’m so glad you’ve been enjoying my posts. I tried to be diligent about documenting my experiences while I was in the Dominican so, it’s good to see that my journal entries have been so well received. I hope to do the same for my next trip. You can always tag along for the journey – no passport needed 😉
