"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines.

Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." -Mark Twain

On our way there we sit and watch as the people stare at us. We stop at this lot on the side of the road with a gate. Children rush the gate cheering and chanting with joy. We get off the bus and enter through the gate. The children lead us in to their school and show us around. Their school consists of two tarps hanging from the trees acting as a roof. They have old broken plastic play ground toys and beat up old desks. Despite the minimal things they had we all still had a ton of fun playing with them.

Finally we have arrived in the Dominican Republic. For the first couple of days we are staying in Santo Domingo at the Amistad Center. At the Amistad center there is a house keeper named Pedro. He is a short guy. He is really funny and kind. Even though he does not speak English we can still some how understand each other. We will miss him when we leave the DR.
