Woohhh this is the first day in the Dominican Republic!
We can not even express how excited about the upcoming adventures together! After the long flight from the States to this beautiful country, the majority of the group took advantage of the four-hour drive from Santo Domingo to San Juan de la Maguana to sleep. Other Glimpsers took time to get to know one another. Everybody seems so excited and eager to learn and grow from this experience.
After arriving at San Juan de La Maguana, we unloaded the luggage and gave out room assignments. The students were surprised to see the mosquito nets. Then, we went to Rosaura’s to eat a delicious first dinner here. During our first nightly meetings, the Glimpsers and Global Glimpse Leaders learned some new Spanish-Dominican words: ayuntamiento, cazicazgo, taíno.
First day down, 15 more to go!
