Day 2: Fun Times In The Dominican

Posted by Paul Field on Tuesday, March 3, 2015
We have made the best of our situations and it feels good to put a smile on the little kids/adults faces and have them swarm us for donations. I will be moving here within a couple years. Hope you love the cold. its 80+ here and sunny with an amazing breeze. Only bad thing in the whole trip is the smell of the burning trash and the sugar cane factory. Everybody is so nice and willing to help you out or take your money. I have also learned how young people here have children so young but the boys start working in the fields at a young age to make money to help support their family and how cruel Central Romana (sugar cane company) is to their workers and pay them not even enough to live. Its sad to see how people live in such terrible conditions but they make the best of it and thats what is amazing about people in the world. Make the best of what you got.

Ah, the good ol' days in the Portland airport. Here, Marie and Page share their excitement. Here in the D.R., they continue to be excited. They are wonderful people.
