Adios Dominican!

Providence HANDS Team:

We greatly enjoyed our work and experience in the Dominican this past week. We have formed new relationships with the people there, and gained new friends along the way, who we hope can come to visit or we can go visit again. Our work has left an impact on those we came to work alongside, and has impacted us as well. 

3:00am, and on our way home already. Our wonderful driver came to pick us up, and we made our way to the airport for our flight just after 6:00am. After checking our bags and making our way through security, we found our gate and boarded shortly thereafter. We managed to get some sleep on the plane, as most of us only had less than three hours of sleep. In just under four hours, we arrived again in New York, where we had to transfer our checked baggage, go through customs, and again make our way through security. 

Quickly stopping to grab burgers and milkshakes for lunch, we then hustled to the entire other end of the terminal to get to our gate. We were the last to board, and relieved to get some more time to rest. 

Finally landing in Buffalo about an hour later, we met up with our drivers who were as excited to see us as we were to see them. After grabbing our baggage, we made plans for who was driving with who back to Woodstock. An hour or so after, we made it across the border, finally back in Canada! 

A few hours drive and we had all made our way back home, ready to get some rest and unpack our bags over the coming days. We were very thankful for our safe travels.
