FTF volunteer blogs from Santo Domingo, before heading out the field!
This is the first time I have tried blogging! I arrived in Santo Domingo airport on May 15. Rafael was there waiting for me even though the flight was 20 minutes early. Yesterday, May 16, was election day. Most businesses were closed due to the elections. I spent most of the day walking through the old colonial city of Santo Domingo - the oldest city settled by Europeans in the western hemisphere. The architecture is amazing!! Today, May 17, is a holiday because it is the day after elections. Many businesses are still closed. The tropical sunshine is fantastic!!
