Back to the Caribbean

Today, I’m heading back to the Caribbean Sea for the third time this winter. This time, the Dominican Republic!

I took a break from blogging during my last trip to Puerto Rico, so all the beachy photos in this post will be from that trip!

This time, I’m getting my students involved. In class, we’re learning about this region of the world. So students wrote notes to Dominican kids, which I am planning to deliver and attempt to get responses. I’ll be spending a day volunteering with youth in between vacation-y time.

I’m looking forward to learning more about Dominican culture. Speaking of tacos, I’m curious to learn more about what the food will be like. I don’t think I know much about food in the Dominican Republic!

In Puerto Rico, we took a ferry to a smaller island and then rented a car. This time, we’ll be getting around with public transit. So, that’ll be interesting.

I’m also looking forward to seeing more interesting plants and wildlife, like I did in Puerto Rico:

What else will I see? Stay tuned to hear more about this adventure. My blogging hiatus is over!
