I’m Kimberly one of the Program Coordinators and I was first Líder del Día for the trip! The blog posts will be written everyday by the individuals taking on the challenge of leading the whole group for the day.

Everyone made it safely to San Juan de la Maguana after a long trip from California, being welcomed at the airport by our awesome Program Coordinators and a 4 hour bus ride to our city from the airport! We were warmly welcomed by our “Dominican mom” Sheila with fresh fruit punch! Sheila will be our food and accommodation provider for the WHOLE trip. We are all very very excited and eager to learn and grow from this experience. We also learned their first Spanish-dominican words: Ayuntamiento, Cazicazgo, Taíno for history day.

First day, 15 more to go!
