I think it's Thursday today...it's so easy to lose track of time here. Boca Chica was absolutely stunning. It was a 2 hour drive, and on the way there we bought sugar cane from some kids on a street corner. for 5 pesos (there's 30 pesos in one american dollar, so you do the math). We drove through Higuey, San Pedro, and La Romana to get there. Each little town or city is the same yet different. But between towns is the most beautiful scenery. Rivers, rolling hills, sugar plantations...I took lots of pictures. But this computer doesnt have a USB port so I can't download them to show you. Ill find one sooner or later.

Once we got to Boca Chica, we went to a restuarant on the beach where our table was on the shore with the waves gently lapping at our feet. I ate fried plantain bananas for the first time. They were delicious! Not at all like a regular banana. And of course we drank rum, and beer, and swam in the ocean. It was a perfect day.

I guess my first week here is over. I'm glad I'm staying way longer though, because I feel like things are just getting started here.
