Boca Chica

Today we were planning to go sightseeing at some major sights around our hotel, but that got postponed until tomorrow. Instead, we headed down to Boca Chica, which is one of the major beaches with lots of locals, tourists, and vendors. See pictures below (all pics on my picture sight). Tomorrow we start our classroom sessions. It's lectures/class in the morning, field work in the afternoon, then we switch between having the evening free and having a group dinner.

Ok, I'm going to get food (probably some more plantains!) and watch the celtics game!

You must have been busy the past two days, there are no new entries!!
What are you up to? The beaches look incredible!
My Mom has a friend who runs the Banana Boat ride in the Dominic Republic. His name is John Holzhall. His parents grew up with my parents Lois and Jack Tracey.
My mom said he is in his late 30's and owns the Banana Boat business on the island. Be sure and ask!
Love MOM
