This surprising turn of events followed on the heels of a good couple days of translating for a medical mission in the capos near Puerto Plaa. They're a group from University Southern Maine that comes every 6 months to these communities. The best part was that my 2 closest friends here came to translate also, and we had time to catch up about the last month. I had the chance to teach several of the med students about coffee. It amazed me how much I have learned already! I'm looking forward to the next medical mission I can translate for (even though health issues give me the willies sometimes!) because it was a great experience, and a welcome chance to see another aspect of the DR.
