Day Three

Guido HANDS Team:

Hola Amigos.

Matt and Ev here having a great time in the D.R. Today we did a lot of exciting things starting off with some new songs and a drama we are going to perform in front of the children from some of COCREF's other schools. From there we went to the market place and met our new friend Billy. Billy toured us around the Old City of Santo Domingo and we saw the place where Christopher Columbus lived and his  castle. We also bought merchandise from a market which Billy showed us, and from there we headed off to Burger King for lunch and then out to the beach. The waves at the beach were really big and it was a ton of fun to crash into them. Even though there was a lot of seaweed in the water and a lot of salt got in our mouths it still was a blast. We played a soccer game when we got back to the beach, and had a good time with some of the people from the Dominican.  We had to quickly rush home to eat supper and get ready for the church service we were going to attend to with our interpretor Billy of course. Once we got to the church everyone was singing with enthusiasm and even though we didn't know the words we clapped our hands in encouragement. Once the sermon started we had to listen to Billy and a couple more Dominicans to know what the preacher was saying. After the sermon we had some good laughs going back to our base and are resting up for the church service we will attend to tomorrow. We are pretty excited about this and we shall keep you posted on our activities tomorrow.
