I just wanted to update this to let people know that my life dramatically changed after school yesterday. To many of you this may not sound like a big deal, but trust me, my standard of living is going up 10 fold. I bought a motorcycle! Its a X1000 CG150, so by US standards it is really small, but here it is bigger than average. I am so sick of walking everywhere and sweating like crazy, as well as having to flag down motoconchos (motorcycle taxi) that I broke down and spent the RD25,000 (roughly $650, the conversion is 39.02:1) it cost. I am buying a helmet after school today so I can learn to ride better, a lot of bikes here have a hand clutch which is very different than motorcycles in the states so its funny to learn at first. Doulos also does not let anyone in the parking lot without a helmet on.
Life has been good and it just got better.
