Wassup y’all it’s Sam and Dom,
Today was an interesting turn of events. We rode out strong and ready to start our CAP day one project, ready to work with the communities on their water pipes. However, Mother Nature said “yeah uh, NAH.” Unfortunately, the heavy rain was a big obstacle and caused us to head back. We didn’t let that destroy our spirits though; instead we spent the majority of the day here at the hostel bonding, playing games, and doing a scavenger hunt. Though by the afternoon some of us were BEGGING to get outside for some fresh air. So a group of us also went out to get ice cream which was delicious. Afterwards, we wrote postcards to all of our supporters from AWAY, United Airlines, and our other Global Glimpse supporters. We then had fun playing some more games, and ended the night with laughs and a great meal.
Now, before you guys congratulate us on being the best bloggers, we figured we’d treat you to some beautiful comments from our fellow glimpsers!
Bree: Hey guys!! Can’t wait to see you all when I get back. I hope Dahuia had a safe flight and hopefully Zaharah is there too. Wish her a happy birthday for me and remind her I’m her best friend and I love her lots!

Sorry to hear the rain dampened today’s plans. It was really great to get your note Bree! Dahvia has arrived but Zahara did not join her. I will be sure to pass your bday message along.
Counting down the days, so excited to see you soon and hear all about your experience.
Fantastic Job, Sam and Dom!
Love today’s blog and the way you shared with everyone. Make the most out of the last few days!! Love you
The blind squirrel, who shall remain nameless, missed you as well and is ecstatic to see you!!
Hi Austin. Where’s my shoutout? -Nicole
Lol! I went to the beach today with the prom group, and it felt odd that you weren’t there making Ticktocks. I guess you’ll have to make up for lost time once you get back. Also, tell Sam that I love her, and I’ll FaceTime her as soon as she gets back. And I hope you both enjoy the rest of the trip!!
The blind squirrel, who shall remain nameless, misses you very much as well and is ecstatic to see you soon!!
What a special treat to hear from the Glimpsers! Everyone made fun of their time on a rainy day – rain that I’m sure Jarabacoa is thankful for. I can’t wait to hear more and see all the pictures when you return! Keep having a grand time with these experiences and thank you to Away, United Airlines, and Global Glimpse supporters.
