Today we went to cabarete and picked up garbage around the national park. Then we jumped into a cave into the water (it was lit!!). We all hopped in the busses and went to playa Alicia (beach) and had soooooo much fun!!! 10/10 would do again! We all got burnt but we have lots of aloe.

Today we continued our service in the community of Caño Dulce. We finished the house we were working on by painting the walls a happy pink color. It was a lot of work, but rewarding to know that someone was going to live in the house that we worked on! After a hearty lunch of ham, plantains, and tropical fruit, we returned to our home base for a relaxing afternoon by the pool. We had fried chicken and French fries for dinner (Yum!). To finish a great day, we watched the NatGeo documentary “Before the Flood”, which opened our eyes to the dangers of climate change and how it is affecting and will affect our daily lives. Tomorrow we do service in the Haitian community of La Grua!
