We’ve Arrived! Dominican Trip Nov 2010 – post 2 of 5

Categories: Humanitarian Trips

We are here safe and sound! Sheesh. THANKFULLY hurricane Tomas somewhat complied and left us alone. Our flights for the most part were smooth and far less scary than we anticipated.

Exploring Santo Domingo

We are staying at the lovely Hotel Europa. This afternoon we had free time to explore the city, rest, get to know one another a bit better and eat a delicious dinner with our Esperanza friends. Everyone is doing great and excited for our first clinic tomorrow. The only unfortunate event so far is one suitcase was never loaded onto the plane from Salt Lake and has not yet arrived here in Santo Domingo. Regardless, our wonderful Kelcie from Dr. Allan Thomas’ office has been a trooper and is still in high spirits. We are all calling it an early night in hopes to get a great night sleep for tomorrow’s clinic. Hopefully we’ll continue to have a strong internet connection so these posts can continue with pictures! Following are pictures of some of the most beautiful architecture and scenery we are enjoying in Santo Domingo.
