¡Ya llegamos a Santiago!
We have arrived!!
Our first day here in Santiago has been great. Our students met their host families last night and came back this morning with many stories of their warm, loving host families.
We went to Jarabacoa, a nearby mountain retreat, for our program orientation. While there we enjoyed an assortment of traditional Dominican fresh fruits and natural juices as well as the traditional rice and beans for lunch.
We ended our day with a refreshing dip in the pool! It was a nice way to start off our trip.
