Quick Update and Great News

Hello readers! It’s been a great couple of weeks for me. First, two great internet updates:

1) I have been listed on ExpatsBlog.com, a blog directory for expats from all over the world living in other countries. Check out my listing here and leave a comment about my blog! It will be appreciated.

2) My post on “What Not to Do in the Dominican Republic” was featured on DR Sisterhood, a website with information about the Dominican Republic. Take a look here on DR Sisterhood!

Thanks everyone for your support!

Second, a few updates on life here in Santo Domingo. I started Spanish classes about a month ago (I tested into level 3 of 5) and I have been getting to know my classmates who are all very interesting and have diverse backgrounds and experiences. To accommodate my 8 hours of class a week, I have cut back my hours at work to allow time for studying.

One of my closest friends from childhood came to visit last week and we had a wonderful few days exploring Santo Domingo together.

We had some delicious food at restaurant’s and cafes, and saw live music at Hard Rock Cafe in Blue Mall.

We spent a day wandering around El Conde in Zona Colonial, and the following day relaxing at Pelicano’s in Boca Chica and enjoying the warm waters and a delicious meal. It was great to see her and go on a “mini-vacation.”
