This weekend we had our first chance to explore the area.  On Saturday all the new staff went on a waterfall hike and on Sunday I went with another guy on staff to run/hike up a local mountain.  There are definitely a lot of places to explore around here, and I hope to get out as much as possible.  I brought my camera on the waterfall hike and here are some pictures.

Dos anos.

So I leave tomorrow?  It feels like I just moved back to KC a month ago, and I all of the sudden I am moving again. I think I am ready, I'm not sure how you can tell if you really are, but I think I am.  My bags are mostly packed, most of my business is taken care of, and I am almost done with my last project before my Masters is completed.  I'm sure I am forgetting something.

The blessings I have received through friendships made and deepened in the past two years are something that I will be eternally grateful for.  I am not very good at the reflective thing, but being back in KC has been an interesting chapter of my life, one that I will be appreciating the memories of for a long time.  I am pretty sure that the DR will not be very similar to my experience in KC, but I can only hope that I will make relationships as solid as the ones I have here.

I'm not sure what else to say right now besides that I will miss lots of people.  Oh yeah, enjoy the 100+ degree temps KC.

Hi friends and family!
Welcome to where I will be sharing some of my experiences from the Dominican Republic with you.  I hope this is something you will enjoy/help you understand what I am doing in the DR.  This is just something I wanted to get up quickly meaning there will be changes to the format and look of the blog as time progresses.
